The Charlotte PCRF Chapter is holding their 6th annual Gala fundraising event for thePalestine Children’s Relief Fund on October 22nd, 2022, at the Hilton Charlotte Center City @222 East 3rd St. Charlotte NC 28202.
The PCRF is a registered non-political, non-profit, 501(c) 3 tax-exempt organization that wasestablished in 1991 by Steve Sosebee and other concerned people in the U.S. to address the medical and humanitarian crisis facing Palestinian youths in the Middle East and has since expanded to help suffering children from other Middle Eastern nations, based only on their medical needs. This is done by locating free medical care for children that cannot be provided locally and by flying teams of medical volunteers to the Middle East to provide care and train local health care workers. You can obtain additional information by accessing our website at www.PCRF.net. PCRF’s humanitarian work has been endorsed by many prominent figures such as former president Jimmy Carter and Reverend Desmond Tutu in addition to many others.
We are proud to be one of the most respected and active nonprofit humanitarian medical relief organizations working in the Middle East. The PCRF continues to be awarded a perfect 4-star rating with Charity Navigator, as we work to provide expert, specialized medical care for sick and injured kids in need, as well as provide urgent humanitarian aid to those impacted by war and occupation throughout the region.
We would like to invite you to our Fund-Raising Gala on Saturday, October 22nd and the opportunity to meet and hear our President and Founder Steve Sosebee talk about PCRF and the impact it has had and continues to have on so many innocent lives. We are also honored to have Dr. Mads Gilbert as our guest speaker. Dr. Gilbert is a Norwegian physician and humanitarian who has been actively involved in medical humanitarian missions to the Gaza Strip. He was lauded as a hero in Norwegian Media for his work in Gaza. This will be an inspirational evening and one you will not soon forget. Our hope and desire is to have a positive impact on the lives of children who are in great need and counting on our help.
