The Islamic Center at New York University is sponsoring Run4Gaza, a fundraiser race for Gaza at this critical time. Columbia University Muslims and Alumni/ae will be working with the ICNYU team to support this relief effort.
According to UNRWA estimates, damages to water, sanitation, and hygiene facilities in Gaza has reached $1.5 million. There are currently 1.5 million people without access to basic resources. Over 100,000 people have either lost or had their homes badly damaged, and over 65,000 Palestinians will be displaced long-term.
Please help us in our efforts by participating in the Run4Gaza race. Every dollar counts.
