Special Message from Dr. Hathout about Palestine & Importance of Giving
“The suffering in Palestine should be a priority for every human being with conscience,” said Dr. Maher Hathout, MPAC Senior Adviser, in a recorded message for KinderUSA‘s upcoming annual fundraising dinner.
In this recorded message, Dr. Hathout stresses the importance of giving and how this must be a conscious priority for Muslims and non-Muslims alike.
On May 5, KinderUSA is celebrating “A Decade of Giving” at its 10th Anniversary Banquet Dinner. As the leading, longest-operating Muslim American charity organization working on behalf of the Palestinian children, KinderUSA works to improve lives through development and emergency relief. Despite adversity and challenges, KinderUSA has impacted more than 600,000 children and their families through its programs in Palestine and Lebanon.
The program will feature author and activist, Norman Finkelstein; the Religious Director of the Islamic Center of Southern California, Jihad Turk; and Norwegian physician, Dr. Mads Gilbert, who was one of the first Western physicians to enter Gaza during the 2008-2009 Israeli invasion as part of the Norwegian People Aid intervention.
