THE CAUSE


The Palestine Run 2024 will be in aid of Muslim Charity’s projects in Palestine.

Muslim Charity has been working in Palestine since 2010, we are partners of UNRWA which gives us unparalleled access in Gaza as well as supporting Palestinians in need.

Muslim Charity recognises that access to quality education is a fundamental right for everyone and so we are striving to grant quality educational opportunities for Palestinian children to let them learn, grow and flourish.

We also understand that farming has shaped Palestinian lives since ancient times and forms an integral part of their cultural and national identity. Muslim Charity therefore offers feasible agricultural opportunities that focus on helping poor Palestinian farmers to recover their livelihoods, and to contribute to preserving their cultural identity through stable employment, income generation and sustainable projects.

You will get an opportunity to visit some of these projects, meet Palestinian beneficiaries and participate in implementing relevant activities witnessing first-hand how your fundraising efforts have helped change the lives of Palestinian families.
