Philanthropist and entrepreneur Nabila Khashoggi devotes a substantial amount of her energy to helping children of the world who are struggling. Ms. Khashoggi’s work with Children for Peace (ONLUS) ranks among her important philanthropic causes.

Co-founded by Nabila Khashoggi’s stepmother, Children for Peace (ONLUS) is headquartered in Rome. The non-governmental organization addresses issues such as HIV/AIDS, education, and war. When Children for Peace identifies children in need of essentials for survival, including food, medical assistance, and education, the organization takes action to remedy the situation. In Mali, for example, Children for Peace worked with Mujeres Solidarias and Concordia Charity to improve literacy in the children of Dogan Country in Mali.

Currently, the organization provides assistance on the Syrian-Jordanian border at Al Za’atari, a Syrian refugee camp. Syrian refugees, often entering Jordan with only the clothes in which they fled war-torn homes, need water, shelter, and food. Children for Peace accepts clothing, vitamins, and monetary contributions and ensures donations arrive to those who need them.
