On Behalf of APWA, We Extend our Deepest Sympathies to the Qubain Family

17 Apr

Dear APWA members and friends,

We at American Palestinian Women’s Association are truly sorry to hear of the loss of Dr. Fahmi Qubain the founder of the Hope Fund: http://www.thehopefund.org/Dr_Qubain.html

On behalf of all of us at APWA, we extend our deepest sympathies to Helen and the Qubain family as they struggle through this period of grief. Dr. Qubain was a valuable asset to our community, and we along with them mourn his loss.

Dr. Qubain passed but his legacy will continue with the immanent success of the 35 Hope Fund students and scholars Dr. Qubain invested more than a decade in pursuit of offering them the best available education. Whether raised in the refugee camps of Lebanon, Syria,  Jordan or  the West Bank. East Jerusalem or Gaza- these promising future Palestinian doctors, lawyers, scientists, politicians and educators bode to be effective contributors of Palestinian society.

We know you will find support in your family, your friends, and the Hope Fund students who have been recipient of Dr. Qubain’s tireless work, boundless faith and commitment.

We are here to help in any way we can, and we hope you can count on us in these difficult times as we promise to continue our commitment to the Hope Fund- as we had done in the past.

Accordingly, in memory of Dr. Qubain and his diligent work to improve the future prospect of young Palestinians we will send the Hope Fund a check on behalf of APWA members. We also encourage APWA members and friends to support the Hope Fund  and the good work of both Dr. Qubain and his daughter Helen by directly contributing to the Hope Fund: http://www.thehopefund.org/
