Palestine Winter Emergency
Palestinian mothers and their children can't keep the cold out without us
The Prophet, upon be peace, said: “The believer’s shade on the Day of Resurrection will be his charity.” (Al-Tirmidhi)
£100 Winter Family Emergency Kit will provide a vulnerable family in Gaza with jackets, socks, hats and scarves, woolly jumpers, and pyjamas to keep their children warm this winter.
Another year of blockade. Medical shortages. Daily power cuts. A highly contaminated water supply. Mass unemployment. Escalations in violence. The year could not get any worse for 2 million Palestinians living in Gaza. And now winter looms.
Winter is harsh in Palestine. Plummeting temperatures, heavy rains and flooding characterise the bitter season. Displaced and unemployed parents struggle to keep their children warm, dry and fed. And now, with COVID-19 cases rising exponentially, winter has brought unimaginable suffering. Gaza has experienced a staggering 40,000 cases since August, and the virus continues to spread in the most populated place on earth.
Help us save lives
This winter, we’re providing 1,399 vulnerable children in the Gaza Strip with warm winter clothing, helping to ease the burden on overstretched families. Distributed by our teams in a COVID-safe way, these vital winter kits will keep children warm and comfortable, while enabling families to spend their limited income on other essentials like food.
How you’ve helped so far
Since launching our Winter Appeal, we’ve provided hundreds of children with a winter wardrobe that protects them from the rain and cold, allowing them to stay warm through winter.
With your help, Human Appeal has been providing emergency winter aid in Gaza for 30 years. Last year alone, we provided warm winter clothing to over 4,000 people in Palestine.
Palestinian families need our help this winter more than ever. Your donation will help a child to stay warm, protected and safe this winter. Your donation is a lifeline for a family struggling to survive with the increasing costs of clean water, food, and COVID-19 protection.
