Islamic Relief Canada, Canada Palestine Cultural Association, and the Muslim Students’ Association (UofA) are hosting a discussion series on the humanitarian crisis in Gaza and how our community can respond to a calamity always on the brink of despair.
We will be joined by physician and aid worker Dr. Tarek Loubani, as well as the head of Amnesty International New York and former journalist Sherine Tadros.
Our guest speakers will share first-hand accounts of their experience on the ground, the atrocities they witnessed, and what our collective responsibility is to the people of Gaza.
Due to the ongoing blockade and attacks on health facilities, thousands of patients are without proper care and assistance. Islamic Relief Canada will be fundraising to support health services in Gaza by providing lifesaving aid to vulnerable families and equipping health facilities with medical supplies to continue their operations.
