Three months on in Gaza

After over three months of terrifying violence in Gaza, the entire population of Gaza is facing a deadly and catastrophic shortage of basic needs including water, food, fuel, and shelter.

But every single day since October 7, our local team has continued working, delivering relief, true heroes who keep going in unimaginable conditions. This has only been possible thanks to your ongoing compassion and generosity.

In just a few months, you’ve helped us to support 415,890 people in Gaza. Here we’re chronicling some of the key items you’ve helped us to deliver.
