Nuran Charitable Association
Jawad al-Bakri, Vice President.
PO.BOX 20998، Jerusalem

Nuran was founded at the start of 2007 by a group of Palestinian youth from Jerusalem to address the community's needs for first aid. The idea came when a person was injured and no one could treat him immediately despite the fact that many people were present at the scene. They felt that there was a huge gap between the first aid services provided in the western part of occupied Jerusalem and the eastern part. We also noticed lack of knowledge and awareness on how to treat emergency cases. These things led to the establishment of the Nuran Charitable Association.

Health, safety, emergency, and humanitarian services.


The Palestinian community is conscious in the field of public health and prepared to handle emergency cases and humanitarian disasters.
