CharityWatch Analysts perform an in-depth analysis of charities' audited financial statements and IRS tax filings, and often review other documents such as state filings, annual reports, and fundraising contracts during their evaluations. Below are select notes that CharityWatch believes may be of interest to donors.

According to the Palestine Children's Relief Fund audit of December 31, 2022 (Note 12, Risks and Uncertainties):

"...PCRF carries out its activities in the Middle East. The political and economic destabilization in the area increases the risk of carrying out activities and could adversely affect PCRF's performance."

According to the Palestine Children's Relief Fund audit of December 31, 2022 (Note 13, Impact from Activity in the Middle East):

"Beginning in October 2023, significant events occurred in Palestine which could potentially affect PCRF's operations in the region. PCRF has significant operations in the Middle East, and the extent of the impact of these events on its financial performance will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted. PCRF is closely monitoring the situation and is developing contingency plans to minimize the potential impact on its operations. PCRF will continue to prioritize the safety of its employees in the region and is committed to complying with all applicable laws and regulations. Accordingly, the accompanying consolidated financial statements as of December 31, 2022 do not reflect any adjustments that might result from this subsequent event."

According to the Palestine Children's Relief Fund 2022 tax filing re: Schedule O, Supplemental Information to Form 990 or 990-EZ:

Regarding Officers, Directors, etc. Family Relationships (Part VI, Line 2):

"Oussama Abughazalah, Director, and Fatima Abughazalah, Director, are siblings. Dr. Khaled Abughazalah, Director, is not related to Oussama or Fatima."
