United Palestinian Appeal
(UPA) seeks to alleviate the suffering of Palestinians in the West Bank, the
Gaza Strip and refugee camps in Lebanon and Jordan, and to contribute to the
long-term socioeconomic and cultural development of Palestinian society. UPA
works in four program areas: health and wellness, community and economic
development, education, outreach.
UPA is a 501(c) (3) New York-registered non-profit organization, with
headquarters in Washington, DC, and works in the occupied Palestinian
territories and refugee camps in Jordan and Lebanon. Established in 1978 in New
York by Palestinian-American professionals, UPA was conceived as a
non-political, non-sectarian organization that would help Palestinians meet
their relief and development needs.
