Recent clashes have increased the already enormous humanitarian needs in Gaza while the Covid-19 pandemic continues to affect the Palestinian community.

The violence claimed the lives of over 200 people in Gaza. Many of them were children.

Our teams are ready to respond where we can with food, water, sanitation and shelter to help people who were caught up in the crossfire.

Help us to support the most vulnerable people.
