Come out and join us for the first annual Ottawa Run For Palestine Gala in support of UNRWA's "dignity is priceless campaign".

The campaign follows the dramatic reduction of funding announced by the United States last week. It aims to raise US$ 500 million.

This reduction in funding could have a significant impact on the daily lives of millions of vulnerable Palestine refugees across Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Gaza, and the West Bank including East Jerusalem. At stake is access to basic education for 525,000 boys and girls at over 700 UNRWA schools; emergency food and cash assistance to 1.7 million extremely vulnerable Palestine refugees; access to primary health care for 3 million refugees, including pre-natal ...care; dignity and human security for 5.3 million refugees who endured 70 years of injustice and uncertainty.

DATE:
Sunday June 24th, 2018
LOCATION:
Saint Elias banquet centre
750 Ridgewood avenue

Doors open at 6 p.m.

Price: $100
