We want to help spread the word about what is sure to be an extremely moving and inspiring event on campus coming up during Peace Week.
Dr. Izzeldin Abuelaish witnessed an Israeli bomb kill three of his daughters and his niece in his Gaza Strip home moments before he was scheduled to be phone-interviewed on live television. Six years after that anguished voice call, Dr. Abuelaish will be speaking at the University of Guelph on how he responded to unimaginable grief with a mission of peace and forgiveness, as he calls for reconciliation between Palestine and Israel.
Dr. Abuelaish, who himself was raised in a refugee camp, has won numerous humanitarian awards around the world and is the founder of “Daughters for Life”, a charity which provides scholarships and educational support to girls in the Middle East. All donations from this event will go to “Daughters for Life”.
