World Refugee Day Iftar

In the spirit of Ramadan, please join UNRWA USA on #WorldRefugeeDay* for a charitable #IftarforGaza featuring authentic Palestinian food at Mama Ayesha’s restaurant in Washington, DC.

69 years after their original dispossession, Palestine refugees are still displaced, and still relying on UNRWA to meet their basic needs as they await a just solution. Nearly one million of the 1.3 million Palestine refugees in Gaza now rely on UNRWA food assistance.

*The United Nations’ World Refugee Day is observed on June 20 each year. This event honors the courage, strength, and determination of women, men, and children who are forced to flee their homeland under threat of persecution, conflict, and violence.

This Ramadan, provide a Palestine refugee family in Gaza with UNRWA food assistance for the entire summer with just $140.
