FONSA is a Charitable Trust created to help the people of Nablus and surrounding areas who are suffering the effects of occupation. Nablus is the most important city in the West Bank and was the cultural and commercial capital of Palestine. Businesses and education have been severely affected. With high unemployment and endemic poverty, many families cannot afford education for their children. Nablus is home to An Najah National University which is the largest university in the West Bank and has other education centres. We support students, projects and developments which can help the people of Nablus to build on their thirst for education and develop their livelihoods.

My page: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/FonsaNurses

FONSA is raising money to support needy student nurses and midwives in Nablus.  They are studying at An Najah National University and will provide modern medical services for the people of Palestine.

How much does it cost?

Each nurse or midwife studies two semesters a year for four years  At £550 per semester (including registration fees) the whole course costs £4,200.

How can I help?

You can contribute directly to sponsor a student.  Or you can raise money for this project through a fundraising event.  However much you can give or fundraise will enable us to sponsor these needy students.
