Taawon Fund Current Campaign:

Children in Gaza have lost their homes, their schools, and for many, the people in the world who keep them the safest—their mothers and fathers. Taawon, a leading anchor organization working across Palestine, estimates that there are 20,000 orphans in Gaza.

Since 2009, amidst recurring wars that have left many children orphaned, Taawon’s Gaza Orphan Care Program has been a reliable lifeline, offering a comprehensive hand of support both in the immediate aftermath and throughout the lives of these vulnerable children.

Your donation to the Taawon Fund at the Center for Arab American Philanthropy will contribute to Taawon’s orphan aid program, which addresses urgent basic needs like food and clothing and provides long-term support to the orphans it takes in until they are 18, such as healthcare, mental health services, access to educational/vocational training opportunities, foster-care family support, and more.

Taawon’s commitment to supporting every orphan until adulthood sets them apart. $2,000 will fully support one orphan for a whole year, but any amount will be a source of hope and will set these children on a better course for the future.
