Tarahum for Gaza

Fundraising initiatives in November will be to support the humanitarian efforts of the UAE’s campaign ‘Tarahum (Compassion) for Gaza’, supervised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Community Development. GEMS Education has partnered with Emirates Red Crescent to launch a fundraising campaign across all schools. 

From November 3-30, Dubai American Academy will be collecting donations in-kind at the main entrance.

DAAPA will soon be sharing information for how you can volunteer to help collect and organize the donations.

Thank you for your support and contributions that will make a real difference to the people in need.
