The people of Palestine desperately need your help

Four years ago, as Palestinians in Gaza were two weeks into Ramadan, the bombs started falling. The war of 2014 continued through Eid al-Fitr for a total of seven weeks. The destruction of public infrastructure still disrupts daily life and undermines already vulnerable living conditions.

Many families in Gaza remain displaced and are struggling to survive without access to essential services such as clean water and healthcare. 96% of water from Gaza’s only aquifer is unfit for human consumption, causing serious illnesses.

You can make a difference and bring satisfaction to people who have lived through war and are constantly suffering

That’s why we’ve restored and rebuilt thirteen mosques that were damaged in the conflict and provided food and warm clothes throughout the winter. Now, we need your help in providing clinics with x-ray machines, so that they can diagnose and treat the high rate of injury in Gaza.

You can improve livelihoods. Donate to support Palestinians today.

Provide X-Ray Units in Gaza

This Ramadan you helped us to provide 200,000 people with access to vital x-ray units. Since many clinics in Gaza don’t have x-ray machines, and given the high rate of injuries from aerial and border attacks, we need your help in providing five x-ray units to different health centres, each one serving up to 40,000 people.

We are also installing a Water Filtration Unit in Rafah to benefit 4,000 people, and providing iftars in al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem and supplying families across Palestine with food parcels to last the month of Ramadan.

Human Appeal's Work in Gaza and the West Bank

In the last year Human Appeal has helped almost 300,000 people in Palestine. From renovating parts of al-Aqsa Mosque, to providing flood-lighting to allow people to attend the mosque safely. We provided warm clothes to children in Gaza over the winter, and we are now working to improve the water sources in Rafah, which will benefit 25,000 people.

This year, we have helped:

  • 290,982 people in total.
  • 6,141 sponsored orphans.
  • 56,978 people with food during Ramadan and Qurbani.

  • 14,700 people with food vouchers in Gaza.
  • 200,000 people provided access to 13 rebuilt and rehabilitated mosques in Gaza.
  • 503 people were given winter kits and 100 Palestinians were provided with blankets at the Rafah border.

By donating this Ramadan, you can help Palestinians to recover from the devastation of war, and to cope with the hardship of life in Gaza and the West Bank.

Tareq's Story

Tareq Al Almodi’s family of six live in Gaza. Their home is a rickety, makeshift shelter, held together by nylon and wood. They have no kitchen or bathroom. No doors and windows. No food or safe water to drink or bathe in. They have lived like this for over 13 years.

Every day is a struggle for survival. The house is not safe or secure. Reptiles, insects and stray dogs enter the living space on a regular basis. Sadly, a dog recently got in and attacked Tareq’s youngest son.

Ramadan is an especially difficult time. Tareq, being in poor health, is unable to work and provide for his family. He has suffered with kidney stones for a long time due to drinking contaminated water. Every day of the holy month, he hopes and prays a kind neighbour will give his children and wife something to eat

Since the 2014 conflict, many families in Palestine remain displaced and are struggling to survive in dire conditions, without food or clean, running water.

95% of the water from Gaza’s sole aquifer is unfit for human consumption and causing serious illnesses. Families now rely on expensive drinking water from unregulated vendors, putting the health of their families at even greater risk.

Tareq’s family are six more precious human beings we can help in Palestine. We can lift them and empower them. By doing so, we can lift ourselves.

So, let’s believe in Tareq. Let’s be the difference. Together we can make life better for his family.
