For 15 terrifying days in May, Palestinians in Gaza faced endless night time airstrikes, which killed 278 people in Gaza, and injured over 9,000. Over 77,000 people had to flee their homes and around 30 clinics and hospitals were damaged, and Gaza’s only COVID-19 test centre was destroyed. But almost four months on, Gaza is still in a state of emergency. The water networks still need repairing, thousands have had their homes and livelihoods destroyed, and, as cases of COVID-19 soar in the most densely populated place on earth, medical centres are struggling to cope.
The effects of the war continue. Here’s how you can help.
We’re helping the most vulnerable families in Gaza during this crisis. Many are struggling simply for sufficient food and clean water, others have had their livelihoods destroyed, and community hospitals are overwhelmed underresourced. Find out how we’re supporting communities in Gaza though health, water, food, and livelihood projects, addressing all sides of the crisis.
Health and livelihoods
We’re working with local clinics to provide urgent medicines, as well as fuel for generators, so that when the daily power cuts occur, patients don’t die just because there’s no electricity.
For the next month, we’ll be supporting Hayfa medical centre, providing critical medicines, medical supplies, fuel, an ECG device.
You can also help us to provide jobs to 100 people who lost their employment during the war. For 6 months, we’re paying them to clear rubble, and cleaning and painting schools in need of rehabilitation.
We continue to run an olive tree project in Gaza, supporting the livelihoods of farmers, including those affected by the recent escalation.
Water, shelter, and food
As the Delta variant COVID-19 tears through Gaza, we’re distributing hygiene kits and we’re trucking clean water which will help protect 500 families against the virus. We’re also rehabilitating 5 water wells which were damaged during the war, as well as water networks and 2 sewage stations.
When you support our desalination plant in Rafah, you’ll help 60,000 people to have access to clean water every day.
In the coming months, we’ll be rebuilding over 100 damaged and deteriorated homes, helping 600 people families to return home and live in a safe environment.
And we’re also continuing to support 1,000 affected families with food vouchers so that they don’t have to worry about food during this crisis, easing their burden while they try to rebuild their lives.
Your help so far
Your support for our Gaza Emergency Appeal allowed our Gaza team to get to work as soon as it was safe to, distributing tonnes of essential medical supplies, 13,500 litres of fuel, and food to 731 families in the Gaza Strip in the most critical moments.
Human Appeal has been working in Palestine for 30 years, delivering life-saving aid, and empowering the most vulnerable. But we need your help today to help Gaza through the ongoing crisis, and to protect families from further harm, while the cameras are focused elsewhere.
The bombing has stopped, but families in Gaza have been left in crisis.
