We launch the
Razan al-Najjar
Nurses Bursary

The Trustees of Children of Peace are pleased to announce the launch of the Razan al-Najjar Nurses Bursary award to fund the training of one female nurse in Gaza every three years.
The Bursary honours the memory of a young Gazan paramedic Razan al-Najjar, who died from gunshot wounds – possibly from an Israeli Defence Force sniper – aged 21 on 1st June 2018, whilst tending to injured protesters at the Israel-Gaza border during the ‘Great March of Return’.
We launch this Bursary with the full permission of Razan’s bereaved parents Sabreen al-Najjar and Ashraf al-Najjar who will help us to select the best candidates.
Our partner in Gaza is the Palestinian Nursing Association and our Bursary Team is led by our Gaza Goodwill Ambassador Dalia al Najjar and supported by Dr Richard Sloan MBE.

Children of Peace is a non-partisan children’s charity organization dedicated to building trust, friendship and reconciliation between Israeli and Palestinian children, aged 4 - 17, and their communities. Our aim is to develop a shared spirit via arts, education, health and sports programmes; so future generations might live and work peacefully side-by-side. We believe in working for peace. That's why we don’t take sides.

"The UK is committed to promoting peace and stability in the Middle East. To deliver this, it is vital that we encourage a culture of co-existence between young Israelis and Palestinians. Charities such as Children of Peace play a vital role in improving understanding between different communities and faiths, helping to ensure long-term peace. I commend your work and wish you continued success in the future."

"I am encouraged by Children of Peace in their commitment against anti-Semitism and Islamophobia. This organisation is taking a step in the right direction by passing down inclusive values to the next generation. ... I commend Children of Peace for their work in this area."

"The Holy Father will remember your intentions in his prayers and he invokes upon you God's blessings of joy and peace."

Professor Hassassian said, "It gives me a great honour to support Children of Peace, an organization that works to alleviate the misery of children and which hopes to lay the foundations of reconciliation, harmony and peace by striving to create an environment for coexistence, cohabitation and conviviality between Palestinians and Israelis. I wish them all the success in their noble mission of securing peace for all."

"As your organization has recognized, children are often overlooked victims of violent conflict, and too few efforts are focused on their particular needs. Generations of Israeli and Palestinian children have grown up with peace as an elusive dream. Supporting the Israeli-Palestinian peace process requires grassroots reconciliation through the mobilization of non-governmental organizations such as Children of Peace. I wish Children of Peace the best success in all of its endeavors as it continues to grow."
