UK charity Human Appeal announced the launch and lineup for its ninth annual Comedy Takeover tour, set to take place in 17 venues across 10 cities nationwide from the 15th to the 31st December.
A temporary ceasefire is set to begin tomorrow at 10 am local time (8 am GMT). This marks a vital opportunity, allowing hundreds of trucks carrying humanitarian aid, food, water, fuel, and medical supplies to enter Gaza with your help.
Sherine, a member of Human Appeal's Gaza team, tells us about the difficulties of everyday life in the conflict zone. On this blessed day, as communication remains disrupted in Gaza, our brothers and sisters, including Sister Sherine, rely on your prayers and support more than ever.
It's now a month since the conflict in Gaza began. It's estimated that a third of Gaza City has now been damaged or destroyed. The people there are just trying to survive whilst also trying to help others, grieve for their dead and protect their children. Amidst the destruction our teams have continued to provide water, hot meals, medicine, hygiene and dignity kits to those who most need it.
People in Gaza are currently facing unprecedented scarcity of food, water, and fuel for electricity. To help meet these essential needs, we've committed to matching every donation you make. Your support allows us to double the distribution of food parcels, hot meals, clean water, and medical supplies.
