From time to time, The Ladah Foundation will initiate special projects to raise funds for specific charitable causes and for specific groups of recipients in different regions of the world. To date, The Ladah Foundation has launched the following projects to raise funds for charitable purposes:

"Quicksand, Oil and Dreams" Fund Raising Project

This project was initiated in September 2001. "Quicksand, Oil and Dreams," a book by Michael S. Ladah, is the story of one of five million Palestinian refugees, the author's personal account of the Palestinian dispossession. It is a collection of his experiences during the exodus from Palestine (Jafa), as a refugee in the West Bank (Ramallah), in the United States as a student and in Saudi Arabia as part of the US and Saudi oil industries. It relates the author's experiences to the political and social events of the time, placing the stories in a historical context. The book is narrated as a story and is easy to read. Visit the book's Web site to get a sense for the broad range of social issues that it addresses.

"Quicksand, Oil and Dreams" retails for $29.95, and is distributed as part of an effort to raise funds for charity. All proceeds from the book are being donated to The Ladah Foundation, and will be distributed to Palestinian students in the form of scholarships at Palestinian universities and to Palestinian charities. The book will be available only through the author in one of two ways:

You may make a donation ($29.95 or more) to The Ladah Foundation and receive a free copy of the book, courtesy of the author. Make your donation payable to The Ladah Foundation and mail it to The Ladah Foundation, 8807 Big Bluff Ave., Las Vegas, NV 89148. You will receive an official receipt for your tax-deductible donation.   You may also donate by wire transfer (Click here for details on wire transfers).

You may order a copy of the book for $29.95 plus shipping ($3.00 in the US or $6.00 for international shipping). You may order by mail addressed to the author at the Foundation's address. A copy will be mailed as soon as possible. Orders, or questions regarding the ordering process, may be sent by email to

Via Dolorosa Relief Project

In April 2001, the Ladah Foundation launched the Via Dolorosa Relief Project, the first of its special relief projects, to raise funds for and on behalf of Palestinians of the Holy Land . These are the Palestinians whose existence has been threatened by the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and who have been emigrating out of the Holy Land at an unprecedented rate. All Palestinians of the Holy Land have suffered the consequences of the social and political upheaval caused by the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.

Schools, hospitals, and orphanages receive scant assistance, if any, from the Palestinian Authority for lack of funds. Many Palestinian schools and orphanages demolished by ‘unintended’ Israeli military bombardment, such as those demolished in Beit Jala, el-Bireh, and Ramallah, Jenin, Nablus and most other Palestinian towns have not been reopened, solely due to lack of funds. The only support that many schools and orphanages receive is from charitable organizations, and from donations made by caring individuals.

To contribute to the Via Dolorosa Relief Project, please write a check payable to The Ladah Foundation - Via Dolorosa, and mail your donation to the Foundation at 8807 Big Bluff Ave., Las Vegas, NV 89148. Please include your name and full mailing address. Donors to the Via Dolorosa Relief Project will receive a free copy of "Quicksand, Oil and Dreams." 

The Ladah Foundation is a charitable organization exempt from tax under section 501 (a) of the Internal Revenue Code as an organization described in section 501 (c) (3). Donors may deduct contributions as provided in section 170 of the Code. Bequests, legacies, devises, transfers, or gifts are deductible for Federal estate and gift tax purposes if they meet certain conditions. The Ladah Foundation was launched in July 1999, for the specific purpose of providing educational and humanitarian assistance to victims of systemic and institutionalized discrimination. The Ladah Foundation and its projects are run exclusively by volunteers in the USA and in the Holy Land, and have no administrative overhead.
Donations will go 100% toward helping potential recipients of our funds and their institutions.
