Striving to care for and educate orphans and needy in Palestine
The organization is governed by elected 23 dedicated National Board Members who annually elect an executive committee that overseas the organization affairs with the help of hundreds of volunteers in the local chapters, but only 2 National Office paid staff. The organization’s transparency, efficiency and dedication to its mission is second to none, for it deploys 100% of all restricted funds, and 83% of all General Funds to its intended purpose. Its financial statements are prepared and audited by the highly regarded Certified Public Accounting firm of Najjar and Gossien, LLC for the last 15 years.
