Nonprofit Overview

Causes: International, International Development, International Relief

Mission: The Palestine Children's Relief Fund is a registered non-political, non-profit, 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization that was established in 1991 by concerned people in the U.S. to address the medical and humanitarian crisis facing Palestinian youths in the Middle East.

Target demographics: provide sick and injured kids with the specialized surgery, humanitarian aid and medical care that isn't available to them locally.

Direct beneficiaries per year: 8,000 Palestinian, Syrian, Jordanian, Iraqi and Lebanese children get the humanitarian aid and care that they needed.

Geographic areas served: Palestine, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Jordan

Programs: Free medical treatment for injured and sick children from the middle east, providing medical and humanitarian services to thousands of children annually, regardless of religion, nationality, or race. The PCRF is working to build pediatric oncology departments at local hospitals in the West Bank and Gaza Strip to care for children with cancer. We also arrange 130 volunteer medical missions from all over the world to provide free care for sick and injured children in their local hospitals, free of charge. We also send dozens of children abroad for free care each year.

I have been volunteering with PCRF for over three years now. It has been an absolutely incredible experience for me, and being able to see the kids we help and save first hand is extremely heart warming and a one of a kind experience. PCRF is the most transparent, straight forward non-profit that allows you the comfort and knowledge of knowing exactly where the money you are donating will be put to use. I will continue to serve as a volunteer for this organization as long as I possibly can!

Working with the PCRF has been a life changing experience for me. I was fortunate enough to be involved in a leg prosthetic case in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The PCRF staff did an amazing job in prepping us on the case and guiding us through the process of receiving medical treatment and recovery. This organization is bringing hope and light back into these children’s lives and improving their quality of life.

I was first introduced to this organization while volunteering for another not for profit. Throughout my teenage and adult life, I have always been involved in many different humanitarian organizations but none like this one. They have paved the road to be involved in a way like no other. I was given the opportunity to open my home for a young girl who was just 8 years old, traveling over 3 countries alone, to get medical attention, my daughters and I have learned so much from this experience that I couldn't even begin to word it. I have met the CEO, the Board of Directors, the many volunteers, and in every aspect, you can think of their mission is truly and purely humanitarian, no strings attached. As human beings, we all in one way or another need a helping hand, from as small as a kind word to as big as a life-altering surgery, and the PCRF is that helping hand that we all need. It opens the doors to the children, to our future, it gives them a smile, a different perspective and looks at life. I can just go on forever and ever and I still couldn't describe the amazing work that they do, they people behind the scenes, those on the ground and the common goal, whether it's dealing with their employees or the children in need. IT SCREAMS IT LIVES IT BREATHS HUMANITARIAN!!!

As a member of the Rutgers University chapter, my engagement with this organization has provided not only a sense of purpose to me as an individual, but also the platform to serve an underrepresented population of children that are in dire need of care. I couldn’t be more proud of my attachment to this organization.

PCRF has changed my life. As a Palestinian American, I feel a strong sense of responsibility to help my people back home who are not as lucky to be in a country where they can prosper. PCRF gives me an outlet to see and touch the children from Palestine and Middle East and help them beyond donating on a website. I’m able to meet the travel abroad patients face to face or I’m able to visit the cancer departments. I don’t know any other organization that provides that kind of community and so grateful to be part of PCRF.

It all began from word of mouth; there was an incredible organization that helped kids in Middle East get the healthcare they have a right to. During one of the benefit dinners, I was hooked. The impression the CEO left on me that night was, “I want to help this organization in any way I can.” The care and respect they give these kids, from cancer patients to amputees, was exceptional. I was happy to donate and volunteer as much as I could. I was impressed by the fact that the PCRF is fueled by an outpouring of support from all over the world and the smiles on the faces of kids in Syria to Gaza who finally get the medicine and care they need, was all I needed to continue my support for the PCRF.

Working with the PCRF has had an incredible impact on the empathic ability and cultural competency of medical students at my university. Volunteering with this non-profit has helped medical students improve and deepen their understanding of professionalism, humanism, and how to best serve marginalized and underserved children abroad. The PCRF is an exceptional model for how all children of our world deserve to be treated with dignity, love, care, and respect.

I'm amazed at all the work they do. They show their work with their results and have helped so many children. This organization's capabilities, passion and love for their work goes beyond descriptive words or phrases. The PCRF is never shy to explain why each dollar is raised, nor are they timid to explain the diseases children in Palestine have and why they need your help. This organization is transparent and the CEO works just as hard as his volunteers and staff to ensure the objectives are met ,to the tee. I will forever be greatful for the work they do.

PCRF is a wonderful charity that all other charities should try to emulate. They put political and religious views aside and take care of what matters the most--the well being of children who most of the world has forgotten about. The volunteers of PCRF not only dedicate their time, but dedicate their lives for this cause. With very little overhead and the dedication of these individuals, over 95% of donations goes to what matters the most--the suffering children.

PCRF has helped our community bring three children from the Middle East for medical care in Columbus Ohio. I have also personally seen the facilities in Palestine that are helping children locally to better their lives
