The Welfare Association is a British registered charity supporting humanitarian and development projects for Palestinian communities in the West Bank and Gaza and the refugee camps in Lebanon.
Volunteers are needed to help with our annual mail-out between 10th-21st December 2018 (but not on Wednesday 12th December 2018). It will involve helping to put our new annual review and appeal sheets into envelopes, attaching postage stamps, stamping envelopes with a return address and sealing and posting the envelopes. We will be doing this between the hours of 9.30 am and 4.30pm at our offices on Cromwell Road.
About Welfare Association UK
The Welfare Association's objective is the reduction of poverty for marginalised Palestinian communities, especially children and the disabled, with support for health, education, agriculture and emergency services in the Gaza Strip, the West Bank and the Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon.
We aim to:
> Work with the most vulnerable Palestinian children, their families and local communities in humanitarian and development projects;
> Increase awareness of the humanitarian situation and daily life in Palestine and in Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon;
> Encourage people in the UK to support our work through donating funds and giving their time and expertise;
> Work in co-ordination and co-operation with Welfare Association (Geneva) and local partner organisations in Palestine and Lebanon.
We do this in our programmes, which can be broadly categorised as:
> Health support in Gaza and in Palestinian refugee camps;
> Education support in Palestine;
> Additional sustainable development support for the most vulnerable communities including the development of agriculture in West Bank and Gaza;
> Emergency humanitarian relief work currently focussed on Gaza;
> Focussed UK advocacy: raising awareness of needs, our programmes and the situation affecting the daily lives of our project beneficiaries overseas.
