Established in 1978, United Palestinian Appeal, Inc. (UPA) is dedicated to providing aid to Palestinians in need, especially children, in the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon.
UPA provides both emergency humanitarian relief and long-term development programs to Palestinian communities striving for economic and social development in the wake of ongoing conflict.
We strive to deliver efficient charitable services at low overhead costs in the areas of education, health care, child sponsorship, and agricultural and community development.
UPA maintains its independence and integrity as a strictly humanitarian organization by not accepting funds from political groups or from any source that may attach unacceptable conditions to its contributions.
UPA is a member of the Independent Charities of America (ICA) and a participating agency of the Combined Federal Campaign.
UPA is also registered with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) as a private voluntary organization engaged in foreign aid (registration does not imply endorsement).
