I’ve been trying to think of the words for this post, but no words are enough. As a mother the images and videos I see are worse and worse every day.
This month has hit very close to home for our family. My husbands grandfather left his land in Palestine to Jordan and he like many many others are never able to return to their homeland.
My hope is to keep the culture alive through stories, and through food. I never want my daughter to grow up and now know where her great grandfather came from. I want to see the day when we can visit the land again.
What I’m doing will never be enough in my heart, but it’s as much as I can do right now.
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.
