Arab Idol Winner Mohammed Assaf Goes on US Tour to Aid Palestinian Refugees
By Reem Tolba
Palestinian pop singer Mohammed Assaf, who also happens to be the winner of Arab Idol’s second season, is currently on a US tour, for all the best reasons. Why, you ask? Because Assaf has already raised more than $275,000 for Palestinian refugees during his first half of the tour.
The “Promise for Palestine” tour features Assaf and Palestinian-American civil rights activist Linda Sarsour, and is presented by Islamic Relief USA. The fundraising tour for Palestine humanitarian relief will cover seven cities, offering contributors a chance to witness Assaf’s live performance.

“Thanks to my dear fellows in Seattle for your support of your full presence on Sunday. With your generous contributions, we have been able to raise more than $275,000, all of which will go to Palestine refugees,” tweeted Assaf, who is also a goodwill ambassador for peace for The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees.
