Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, a vocal advocate for Palestinian aid and education, delivered a powerful speech at the "United for Peace in Palestine" summit hosted by Turkish First Lady Emine Erdoğan. Amidst her heartfelt call for solidarity with Gaza, Sheikha Moza announced her withdrawal from her UNESCO role, citing the organization's failure to aid the children of Gaza.

In her speech, Sheikha Moza emphasized the urgent need for global support for Gaza, highlighting the agonizing humanitarian crisis faced by its children. She emphasised the distressing statistic from the World Health Organization, stating a child dies in Gaza every 10 minutes, emphasizing the dire need for immediate action and humanitarian aid.

Expressing gratitude to Mrs. Erdoğan's unwavering support and commending Qatar's commitment to Gaza's education through the Education Above All Foundation, Sheikha Moza called for countering false narratives and promoting truth in support of Palestine's cause.

Amidst her advocacy, Sheikha Moza's decision to withdraw from her UNESCO role echoed through the summit. Citing UNESCO's failure to adequately support and rescue Gaza's children amidst Israel's ongoing bombardment, Sheikha Moza voiced her disappointment and declared her withdrawal.

Sheikha Moza's strong stance reflects her long-standing commitment to global education, a cause she has championed since 2003. Her withdrawal signals a bold move, underscoring her unwavering dedication to justice for the people of Gaza and her principled approach in advocating for their rights and well-being.
