My name is Alaa AbuShabaan, and I am hoping you will help fulfill my dream to help and create a shift here in my community and the people of Gaza, especially women, children and youth. All I need is your support and help.
Who I am
I am a 25-year-old Palestinian refugee, whose family ended up in the Gaza Strip after being forced to flee our ancestral home in Haifa. As I grew up, I learned to work with very limited resources. Like most Palestinians in Gaza, I suffered from a shortage of books, water, electricity, technology and freedom of movement. However, I persevered, and completed my bachelorís degree in English, from the University College of Applied Sciences (UCAS).
In my studies, I have taken on various leadership roles. Recently, I am involve two students selected from more than 600 Gazan youth to represent my people in a delegation to an international conference in Malaysia called Evolution for Palestine. I am now a member of the follow-up task force charged with carrying through on the contacts we made and the opportunities we identified. Through these experiences, I became increasingly aware that I have a responsibility to work towards helping the poor and needy there rather than just complain about the tough situation and bad environment there.
Currently, I head the development department at Malaysia Palestine Youth Movement (MPYM) - UNDP, a member of
board of directors at Hayfa Charitable Medical Center and heading the projects committee there. And helping other charitbale NGOs working in the field of Relief & Development.
Let me tell you why I think Iím worth your donations.
I am here today to keep you updates with latest ideas which could help and upgrade my people here to build a better future for the Palestinian women, childe and youth .. and of course, that will not happen without your great efforts and support. I believe that together we can bring more love, smiles and laughter to the short lives of our children and young people.
