The Secretariat has selected Coexistence as the conference-wide theme for FCMUN XIV. As defined by Brittanica, to “coexist” means to “live in peace with each other” at the same time. We find this word extremely relevant today in today’s fragmented world. Is it really possible to coexist peacefully with people who are different from you? Is it possible to even go beyond coexistence and truly understand the people around you? This word is common in Model UN committees, with coexisting alongside countries or people whose goals and aspirations conflict with your own being a crucial component of how debates are run and positions are made. It may seem ineffective, but resolutions and directives in a typical room only get passed through a majority vote for a reason. Just as coexistence is needed to succeed in Model UN, we believe coexistence is needed– and can be achieved– through working together to understand the experiences and perspectives of groups of people different from your own.

To align with our theme of coexistence, the secretariat has chosen the Palestine's Children Relief Fund to be the official fundraiser for FCMUN XIV. It is of the essence of Model United Nations to transcend boundaries and unite as one. To the secretariat and staff of FCMUN, there has not been a more urgent time to unite for a cause. Protecting Palestinian children and families during the ongoing atrocities requires massive resources and aid, and the Palestine's Children Relief Fund has been of interegal importance in this fight. To protect the most vunerable and at-risk members of the international community, FCMUN graciously asks for your help by supporting the Palestine's Children Relief Fund.

ABOUT The PCRF Missions and Projects

The PCRF is a legally-registered non-political, non-profit, 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization established in 1991 by concerned people to address the medical and humanitarian needs of Palestinian and Arab youths in the Middle East. We have provided thousands of children life-saving care based on their need, not on religion, gender, nationality or sect.

The main objective of the PCRF is to identify and treat every child in the Middle East in need of specialized surgery not available to them locally. We locate, sponsor and run international, volunteer medical missions to the Middle East, in additional to locating free medical care abroad for children who cannot be adequately treated in the Middle East. The PCRF  is the main organization regularly sending injured and sick Arab children to North and South America, the Middle East and Europe for free care that is not available to them there. Since 1991 over 1,000 children have been abroad for millions of dollars of donated care, and over 10,000 have had complex surgery by our visiting medical missions to the region. The PCRF has been awarded the top 4-star rating by Charity Navigator for fiscal management, while being able to treat more kids than any other charity in the Middle East.
