Ahlam’s story shows how joint efforts of many partners can successfully assist people in need.

It takes a village to help Ahlam

Coordinated efforts of UN organizations, local authorities, civil society, and diplomats made it possible for Ahlam to exit Gaza with her mother for a much-needed surgery .in Jerusalem. It took a village.
