It's not business as usual. Every little bit helps.

article MOR SHANI/UNSPLASH

It's the weekend.

There is a heaviness over our hearts, minds, and conversations. Nobody wants to brunch, dance, eat, or laugh. We want to mourn. We want to cry. We want to rage. And we want to help.

The UAE has launched a campaign called Tarahum (Compassion) for Gaza across all its Emirates. Volunteers are gathering donations and supplies and mobilizing them to provide immediate relief as soon as the borders open.

This weekend, gather supplies such as non-perishable food, winter clothing, and hygiene packages and drop them off at one of the following locations holding drives to bring much-needed help to our brothers and sisters in Palestine.
