Why Gaza need our help.
Over the last two weeks conflict has once again escalated with the people of Gaza experiencing consecutive nights of airstrikes.
Decades after the conflict first began, life remains precarious for many Palestinians. Economic development has been stifled by political instability, constant conflict, and the continuation of blockades in Gaza. To support Gaza, we’re building livelihoods and providing crucial health care.
Almost 30% of the population across the Palestinian Territories live below the national poverty line. Amongst a population of around 4.6 million people, hundreds of thousands of families are struggling with economic hardship.
Your donations can provide Gaza help – Donate Now and deliver Gaza aid.
Your donation can help save a life.
With intensifying conflict in the region, we’re on the ground now ready to respond in the coming days and weeks to provide lifesaving medical care in an area where the health system is already short in resources.
Gaza’s health system is under severe pressure due to ongoing staff shortages and lack of medical supplies.
With around half the population across the Palestinian Territories in need of humanitarian aid and water, and electricity shortages across Gaza, we’re working to support communities in need across the region.
Islamic Relief has been working in Gaza since 1994 providing vital support to vulnerable communities through donations towards our Gaza relief fund. Our work in Gaza is focused around food distribution, and addressing urgent health needs.
Your support for Gaza will enable our teams to deliver medical supplies and equipment including medicines, disposable items, medical kits and food for patients and medical staff.
Crisis in summary
Palestine, and Gaza in particular, continues to experience a critical humanitarian crisis.
As the violence escalates, so does the number of casualties. Access to basic services worsen day by day, and the recovery of communities remains severely threatened.
With homes destroyed and families torn apart, too many are homeless and in need of urgent relief. Children have suffered unspeakable horrors and many are traumatized by the fear of living in a hostile environment.
Due to constant conflict and instability, poverty has gripped over 57% of the population. Access to basic services, including education, healthcare, electricity and clean water sources, has deteriorated drastically. Severe food insecurity has caused Palestinian mothers and children to be affected by chronic illnesses such as anemia, malnutrition, diabetes and hypertension.
As the humanitarian crisis persists, there is increasing need for medical and hospital supplies, food, clean water, energy, psychosocial and economic empowerment.
Help us now as we provide emergency aid, medical relief and psychosocial support.
