Nobel Prize winner and Pakistani education
campaigner, Malala Yousafzai, has donated
$50,000 towards the reconstruction of schools in
war-torn Gaza in Palestine. Many public
buildings and schools in the Gaza Strip were

destroyed by Israeli warplanes and tanks during
Gaza's recent conflict with Israel.
Malala made the donation yesterday Wednesday
October 29th after receiving the World Children’s
Prize for the rights of the child in Marienfred,
Sweden. Speaking at the event, Malala said the
money will be channeled through the United
Nations relief agency UNRWA to help rebuild 65
schools in the Palestinian territory.
