It was a hectic time for us recently as we unveiled 2 new bags, so we decided to pool the RM10 from the sale of each bag in July and August and make one donation, to a very worthy cause, the UNRWA.
The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East was established in 1949 to carry out direct relief and works programmes for Palestine refugees. When it began operations in 1950, it provided aid to about 750,000 Palestinian refugees in Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, including East Jerusalem; today the number has increased to 5 million.
UNRWA human development and humanitarian services include primary and vocational education, primary health care, relief and social services, infrastructure and camp improvement, microfinance and emergency response, including in situations of armed conflict.
On 1 September 2018, the US announced that it will no longer provide funding to the Agency after decades of support. UNRWA's global fundraising campaign, #DignityIsPriceless aims to protect the rights and dignity of millions of Palestine refugees who deserve our solidarity more than ever before.

Please donate generously and may Allah shower you with His barakah in this world and the next, Aameen.
