This week we sit down for a discussion with Mohamed Eid, who was born and raised in Gaza and worked with the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), teaching in the UN schools in Gaza for several years. He currently is studying at the University of North Carolina and Duke University in the specialized field of crisis management. He is joined by Lori Mosher who works with UNRWA USA, a private non profit organization that raises money to support the work of UNRWA.

Mohamed and Lori have been touring US cities, talking about Gaza, UNRWA, and the steepening challenge it now faces. We caught up with them when they came to Boston on their tour.

As Mohamed and Lori report, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency has been a lifeline for the entire population of Gaza. UNRWA has provided consistent, reliable food aid, as well as operating schools in Gaza. Until Trump's malignant, hate-based assault, the U.S. was providing about a third of the total cost for this. To avert even worse conditions, that must quickly be replaced.
This Week In Palestine (a weekly 8am feature of Truth and Justice Radio (TJR)) is an award-winning 45-minute (or more) segment of news from Palestine and discussion of issues relevant to the Palestinians' struggle for freedom from Israel's brutal military occupation and colonization of their homeland.
