The lives of Palestinian children are either invisible or distorted in the mainstream media. That’s why it’s so important that you stay informed and share what you learn with your community. The News & Opinions section and blog on this website, along with MECA’s email newsletters and public events can provide you with news and insight you’d have a hard time finding on your own. By staying informed, educating others and then taking action, you can help us further our mission.
The Middle East Children’s Alliance relies on the energy and commitment of individuals to fund our programs. Individuals and community groups anywhere in the world can support MECA’s work by contributing and organizing others to give.
Some fun ideas to connect with people and raise money:
- Have a house-party, teach-in, concert or film screening.
- Organize a Middle East culture night.
- Ask people to donate to MECA in honor of your birthday or wedding.
- Most importantly, you can create your own Personal Campaign page on our website to help provide clean drinking water to the children of Palestine and other programs.
Our staff will guide you through the process and provide materials.
Please get in touch with Events Coordinator Penny Rosenwasser for assistance.
