On behalf of all Palestinians, PNGO members, and civil society organizations as a whole we send our deepest condolences to Dr. AllamJarrar’s family and the people of Palestine at this very difficult time.

Dr. Jarrar also is one of the founders of the Palestinian Non-Government Organizations Network which was established in 1993. He had a clear mission, vision, and always fought for Palestinian independence, freedom from occupation, where Palestinians enjoy democracy, tolerance, dignity, social justice, rule of law and respect for human rights. Occupationand curfews did not hold him back in his resistance to occupation. He went out of his way to assist the poor and treatment of the wounded and sick. His journey also included organizing  Medical relief campaigns to Palestinian villages, refugee camps and vulnerable areas.

His passionate determination and hard work will not be forgotten, we assure you that your journey has not ended and that we will continue your journey till the end.
