Your cover letter describing why you are the right person for this internship position 2. Your resume, and 3. Two references ----------------------------More Info on this role and our organization--------------------------------- PKU stands for Phenylketonuria. Children born with this condition cannot digest most proteins. They need special medical food and without it, they suffer irreversible brain damage. In 2017, a parent in Gaza asked Rebuilding Alliance’s help to buy medical food for her two children - we found out there are 220 PKU children in Gaza and another 360 PKU children in the West Bank all of whom need 6 cans of medical food each month. Once we learned the scope of the medical food crisis, we formed a 'PKU Tiger Team’ to bring this forward with the UN Health Cluster and the medical community. Our all-volunteer advisory team is meeting twice a month, and there’s a lot of good work ahead. If you would like to lead or co-lead this team, you will be responsible for assisting in managing the project, coordinating with the team to share the latest news, using your network and ours to engage the members of the UN's Health Cluster to resolve the crisis, and help develop press strategy. As a volunteer, we would also ask your help with our PKU Mommy’s Kitchen Cooking Show as they launch Season 2! If you are detail-oriented, passionate about public health particularly children’s health, comfortable working with a team and independently, willing to spend 8-10 hours per week on the project, able to respond to emergencies, good at fundraising (or want to learn how), and committed to making a positive difference in the lives of children, especially PKU children in Gaza, please apply. We ask for a 6 month commitment. For more information about the project, go to: https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/palestine-pku-children
