Salam Ya Seghar, a fundraising campaign in support of Palestinian children, has been launched by Jawaher bint Mohammed Al-Qasimi, wife of the ruler of Sharjah.
The campaign, originally launched five years ago, is redoubling efforts this year in the wake of the fresh Israeli aggression that has led to diminishing health, educational and psychological conditions of the children of the region.
The campaign, conducted in collaboration with Oxfam and the Save the Children organization, aims at allowing Emirati individuals, businesses and organizations to aid in raising the necessary funds to provide health care, food and basic needs to Palestinian children in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, to help them overcome the harsh daily conditions.
Noura Al Noman, director of the Executive Office of Sheikha Jawaher Al-Qasimi, said, “Sheikha Jawaher bint Mohammed Al-Qasimi launched the campaign to bring hope to Palestinian children. The campaign has implemented many projects and programs in cooperation with various international and UN organizations with a focus on education and health.”
Cooperation between the Salam Ya Seghar campaign and the international organizations covers the fields of health and education.
