The Palestine Childrens Relief Fund
The PCRF was created as a nonprofit, nonpolitical medical relief organization during the first Intifada by concerned people seeking ways to contribute in a positive way to the humanitarian needs of children under Israeli military occupation. Over the past twenty-two years, the PCRF have sent over 1,000 children from Palestine, Lebanon, Jordan, Syria and Iraq for free surgery in North and South America, Europe, Asia and other parts of the Middle East. Over 10,000 children have had direct surgery by hundreds of visiting teams from all over the world. In addition to being the main organization sending children abroad for free care and bringing in expert surgery teams to provide care and training for local medical personnel, the PCRF also run many different humanitarian programs and projects, including opening the first and only public pediatric cancer dept. in Palestine. The PCRF has field staff and offices throughout the Gaza Strip, the West Bank and Lebanon to ensure that we are able to identify and support the care of children in need.

PACES was founded in 2006 with the aim of providing healthy, structured after-school sports programs for Palestinian girls and boys; for girls as a means of getting them out of their homes and into programs that empower them within their communities, and for boys who would otherwise be on the streets and exposed to violence and negative or destructive influences. PACES believe that providing children from refugee camps and marginalised communities a fun and healthy alternative to being in their homes and/or on the streets can make an immense difference in advancing their general well-being, their physical and social development, and help them develop into productive adults in the future.
