While Ahed isn’t Ukrainian – she is Palestinian and the occupying solider is Israeli – she is an inspiration to many. Ahed is a well-known Palestinian, celebrated for the courage she’s shown in the face of relentless Israeli violence against her community.
We are committed to supporting children in Palestine through our ally Defense for Children International. A 2021 grant supported their accountability program, which offers direct socio-legal services to Palestinian children, collects evidence of human rights violations, and develops innovative national and international evidence- based advocacy initiatives.
