Gaza Emergency Appeal

Leave no one behind this winter

In the ongoing crisis in Palestine, Human Appeal stands united to provide urgent aid. Since October 7, over 20,000 Palestinians, including over 8,000 children, have been killed, with over 53,320 wounded and many missing. Hospitals are on the brink, 27 out of 35 hospitals are non-operational, and 102 ambulances lie damaged. The siege has left 2.3 million people without essential supplies. Gaza's power plant is shut, and hospitals face imminent fuel shortages. Entire neighbourhoods have been wiped out, and families urgently need support for basic necessities. Your donation can provide hygiene kits, water tanks, nutritious food parcels, fuel, waterproof shelters, winter kits, medical treatment, and support for Palestinian families. Human Appeal, in partnership with global UN allies, has been aiding the region since 1991. Our local teams have been actively assisting Palestinians for over 30 years, and we remain committed to supporting them long after media attention wanes, contributing to the rebuilding and empowerment of Palestinian families. Every contribution makes a meaningful impact. Donate now to alleviate the suffering in the holy land.
