Please Support the Olive Kids 2018 Campaign
Give them a Home
Last year, we raised over $200,000 AUD to commence construction of the Olive Kids wing at Al Amal Orphanage in Gaza.
This year, we’re aiming to complete the project, with the following:
- Raise $140,000 to fund completion of 10 rooms to house 60 young children
- Raise $60,000 to furnish the rooms
- Sponsor 50 additional children through the Olive Kids Child Sponsorship Program (which currently provides financial support for basic necessities for more than 200 children in Gaza)

Olive Kids is an Australian registered foundation that seeks to facilitate financial support, education & medical assistance to Palestinian children. Founded in 2007, Olive Kids is run by passionate volunteers from a range of professions.
As a consequence of the occupation, Palestinian children are robbed of their childhood. They suffer emotionally, physically and psychologically - deeply impacting their progress and development.
Under occupation in Palestine or in the refugee camps, the living conditions deny these young kids the very basic rights of security, health care, access to education, freedom of movement and basic infrastructure. Generations of young children are forced to mature at a young age, traumatised by their daily experiences. In effect, these kids live no childhood at all.
