Seraj Library Project
Empowering Palestinian Villages, One Library at a Time
2020 Benefit Sponsors
These people have paved the way with pre-benefit gifts. Follow their lead!
Covid-19 has put Seraj in deep Pandemic pause, but we need to keep our eyes on the prize. Palestinians know how to keep going in the face of obstacles and tragedy, and use the term samud or steadfastness to describe this quality. We in the US could learn from them.
Seraj Library Project was in a great place when the Coronavirus struck.
All these plans are still in place, just waiting for Palestinian society to open up. Because of the generosity of Seraj donors the past three years, we have money to pursue these projects ready to go, just waiting.
