Education Above All (EAA) Foundation has announced the launch of the ‘Keswet Al Eid’ campaign for children in Gaza to find immediate and practical solutions for providing humanitarian support in the Gaza Strip, and on the initiative of Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, Chairperson of EAA.

This programme is being carried out in partnership with the Qatar Red Crescent, Al-Mujadilah Centre and Mosque for Women, and Minaretein Mosque. The campaign will provide new clothes for infants and children. Donation collection will begin on the 24th day of Ramadan and continue until the first day of Eid al-Fitr. Collection points are at Al-Mujadilah Centre and Mosque for Women and Minaretein Mosque, Education City.

EAA CEO, Fahad al-Sulaiti, said: “EAA is making diligent efforts to provide humanitarian aid in the Gaza Strip. These efforts serve as a beacon of compassion and community spirit, encapsulating a profound commitment to humanity’s interconnectedness. The act of giving, in its simplicity, becomes a conduit for hope and dignity, transforming each piece of clothing into a symbol of our collective resolve to mitigate suffering and elevate the human spirit. However, our vision transcends the immediate warmth provided by these garments, delving into a broader spectrum of support, including mental health services, recreational activities, university scholarships, hygiene kits, youth initiatives, and meals for the displaced.”

Faisal Mohamed al-Emadi, secretary-general of Qatar Red Crescent Society, said: “This is not the first co-operation between us, and it will not be the last, God willing. We intensify our efforts and sharpen our will to relieve our people in Gaza, and we never hesitate to participate in any action that supports their resilience and meets their basic needs in these difficult circumstances.”

EAA, in partnership with UNFPA, and through the network of youth volunteers, is spearheading a transformative wave of initiatives, reaching thousands of children and youth with crucial support. From educational programmes to health and psychosocial interventions, these initiatives embody a comprehensive response to the urgent needs of those affected by the ongoing crisis in the Gaza Strip.

As of March 1, 2024, more than 625,000 students in Gaza have no access to education, and 392 educational institutions have sustained significant damage. As many as 4,851 students and 239 teachers have been killed, IDP used 318 school buildings as shelters, and 142 of them were attacked. Currently, more than a million people are sheltering in 145 UNRWA Schools. Nearly all the children in the enclave require mental health support.

Individuals looking to contribute and support ‘Keswet Al Eid’ can make contributions by donating new clothing items directly after Taraweeh prayer until midnight at designated clothes boxes located at Al-Mujadilah Center and Mosque for Women, and Minaretein Mosque in Education City.
