International Medical Corps

The International Medical Corps (IMC) is one of the world’s most widely recognized humanitarian aid organizations, known for often being the first responder to rush in and provide emergency relief to people affected by conflict, disaster, and disease. 

Their work reaches across the globe and covers everything from medical services and food security to mental health and water, sanitation, and hygiene. This Ramadan, they are spotlighting two of their appeals: one for Israel and Gaza, where they have deployed a 140-bed field hospital providing lifesaving medical services to as many as 800 civilians per day, and the other for Ukraine, to bring medical, mental health, and protection services to the millions of people affected by the conflict, including refugees.

NYU Abu Dhabi

NYU Abu Dhabi is the first comprehensive liberal arts and research campus in the Middle East to be operated abroad by a major American research university, and aims to be a world leader in knowledge building, research, and innovation. Its research spans an intriguing range of topics, from gamma ray flashes in space to biotechnology to the unifying power of language, and the university also plays host to cultural events – concerts, art shows, theatrical performances – throughout the year. With COP28 being hosted by the UAE last year, NYU Abu Dhabi has committed to redoubling its own efforts to propel research, teaching, and action on climate change, both in the country and beyond.

King Hussein Cancer Foundation (KHCF)

With the mission of restoring hope and saving lives, the Gaza Goodwill Fund at the King Hussein Cancer Foundation (KHCF) is dedicated to ensuring equal access to quality care for all by supporting the urgent healthcare needs of cancer patients from the Gaza Strip. More than 9,000 cancer patients in Gaza are being denied access to essential treatment in the face of a severe humanitarian crisis and the destruction of the Gazan healthcare system. Hospitals are out of service, medical supplies are scarce, and efforts to rebuild cancer treatment services after conflict will take years.

Ensuring access to cancer care for patients from all walks of life is a core pillar of KHCF’s humanitarian mission, accomplished through the Foundation’s Goodwill Funds. Since its launch in 2003, Goodwill Funds has been providing vital support to thousands of underprivileged cancer patients

including in Gaza. These individuals have benefited from critical medical treatments, medications, and various support services, enabling them to navigate their cancer journey despite the challenging circumstances.

KHCF is committed to continue supporting the 28 patients from Gaza who are already being treated and the 100 evacuated patients that we expect to receive in the coming months, as well as the estimated 250-300 patients who will need treatment each year until Gaza’s health system can be rebuilt.

Alfanar

As the Arab region’s first venture philanthropy organization, Alfanar approaches giving differently, investing in ambitious social enterprises to develop sustainable revenue streams and break the cycle of donor dependency. The organization expects and measures a social return on the funds it contributes, so donors know the value of their contributions will be multiplied in the long term. The projects currently in their investment portfolio include one run by the Future Eve Foundation which provides vocational and financial literacy training, microloans, and project support for widows in Egypt to launch and run their own businesses; FabricAID in Lebanon, which provides affordable clothing to marginalized communities to help decrease landfill and create jobs for refugees; and Heya Masr, a start-up working to develop the resilience of public school students in Egypt through after-school programs.

Ruwwad

Ruwwad Al-Tanmeya is a nonprofit community development organization that works with disenfranchised communities through education, youth volunteerism, and grassroots organizing. Its work is built on four main programs: Child Development, Adolescent Development, Youth Organizing, and Community Support. With projects that span Jordan, Egypt, Lebanon, and Palestine, Ruwwad operates through a strong network of partnerships with civil society and governmental agencies, all with the goal of generating opportunities and levelling the playing field for young people, nurturing 360-civic engagement, and actively encouraging ground-up solutions.

END Fund

In its quest to see the end of the most prevalent neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) by 2030, the END Fund works with its partners to mobilize resources and deliver NTD treatments to those in need. Since its founding in 2012, the organization has helped provide more than a billion treatments for diseases including lymphatic filariasis, commonly known by its advanced-stage symptom, elephantiasis; river blindness, an eye and skin infection caused by parasitic worms; and schistosomiasis, which is second only to malaria as the most devastating parasitic disease in tropical countries.

Youssef Tabsh Foundation

Established in memory of Dr. Youssef Abdulkader Tabsh, a medical doctor, philanthropist, and activist, the Youssef Tabsh Foundation wants to see an Arab society that is more collaborative, socially just, and healthy. Its main objectives are: increasing pan-Arab collaboration in the fields of culture, history, education, research, technology, and social and economic investments; providing support, services, aid, and awareness toward social justice; and providing access to healthcare to those in need. One of its most recent programs offers bespoke training, coaching, and expert advice to smaller NGOs in any Arab country and those in Turkey serving Arab refugees that are working on social justice, pan-Arab collaboration, or the medical and health sector, to help them boost their fundraising and reach financial sustainability.
