Next week Kumi Now will mark the Universal Children’s Day on the 20th of November, by reminding us that Palestinian children are denied the human rights and the opportunities of children elsewhere in the world. Nearly 200 countries around the world, including Israel, have signed up to the Conventions of the Rights of Children Treaty, which requires governments to act in the best interests of children. The treaty states that all children have rights to safety, health, access to education and opportunity and a stable family life.

  • Lord, we pray that international organisations will challenge the Israeli government for the mistreatment of Palestinian children. We pray for an end to the harassment of Palestinian children by the Israeli military during night raids  and arrests. We pray for an end to the home and school demolitions and lack of employment opportunities for young Palestinians.
    Lord, in your mercy..
