It's Christmas, let’s save a life!

Help save Samar Maree's life this Christmas

It’s the season of goodwill. It’s Christmas in three days. What better way to celebrate the birth of Christ than by helping to save the life of a little 10-year-old girl.

Samar Maree is dying. She needs life-saving brain surgery. She will not live to see the New Year if she is not operated on within a month.

Samar lives in Ramallah on the West Bank where the operation cannot be performed. She has to be flown to Florence, Italy, where pediatric neurosurgeons at the Meyer Children's Hospital can treat her.

The problem is that Samar needs around $21,000 to receive the treatment that will save her life. And what better Christmas present can we contribute to?

Donations as at Thursday (22 Dec.) morning
The Palestine Children’s Relief Fund (PCRF) has set up a dedicated emergency giving page to receive donations. They have already raised around $6,600, thanks to your generosity. But they still need $15,000 by January 19, 2012.

Please help make Samar’s Christmas and include her in your presents. Every donation, big or small, counts. Thank you.
