My story

I am taking part I'm a 5 hour run around Meersbrook Park in Sheffield  on Sunday the 23rd of June 7am-12 midday.  To raise money for Small Park Big Run and the two Palestinian charities they support linked to Children's play and women's education in Gaza and the West Bank. See below for more details.  

Children’s Play and Mental Health Support in Gaza
Sheffield Palestine Cultural Exchange (SPaCE) helps children in Gaza and the Occupied Territories by both providing funds to improve health play and cultural facilities and by raising awareness in Sheffield of the living conditions faced by young people living in Gaza and the Occupied Territories. SPaCE is a charity – number 1198863.
The charity trustees released this statement on March 22nd 2024:
“From October 2023 Gaza has been in the midst of an unprecedented crisis. International humanitarian organisations are warning that a major famine is imminent and the lives of children are particularly vulnerable. Israeli bombardments have led to the near total destruction of homes, hospitals, water supply, schools and universities.
Our normal work cannot be carried out: the Children’s Centres no longer function. So, given these extraordinary circumstances, SPaCE has decided to support an established and trusted Emergency Aid distribution network providing basic essentials, including food, hygiene kits for women, children’s clothing, nappies, blankets, plastic sheeting for shelter and other such simple provisions to help sustain life.

University education for Palestinian women .

The Sheffield Palestine Women’s Scholarship Fund has also faced serious difficulties in continuing its support for women’s education since October 2023. The trustees have issued this statement:
“Sheffield Palestine Women’s Scholarship Fund is intent on continuing its support for Palestinian women to access education. It will work with it’s Gazan partners, when possible, to support the Gaza-based students. Sadly, it is not currently clear how access to resources can be facilitated given the wholesale destruction of education facilities in Gaza. When we know more we will update you. The Fund also supports students in the West Bank where conditions are extremely bad and universities have been closed forcing learning online. Support for these students will continue as normal.”
You can sponsor and donate to the Sheffield Palestine Women’s Scholarship Fund (SPWSF) using this Give As You Live page . The scholarship fund is a charity. Charity number: 1133499 .
We have little news on our students in Gaza, though we know that at least one has been killed. Our students in the West Bank are concerned for their sister students in Gaza and face their own uphill struggle to be educated.
