Appeal for Humanitarian Relief

Since attacks on Gaza started in October 2023, at least 34,000 civilians have been killed, and more than 77,000 injured, with the figures set to increase as attacks continue. Nearly 50% of those killed are children. UNWRA reports that 1.8million people have been internally displaced. The UN reports more than 40,000 structures have been destroyed, including many homes, schools, and hospitals, and the population has had to flee to already overcrowded refugee camps in the southern part of Gaza.

Current Situation in Gaza

Aid deliveries remain severely obstructed. However, Aghosh UK and partners managed to reach families in Rafa at the end of March 2024. Aid efforts are continuing.

A snapshot

The grim reality for the people of Gaza before the October 2023 attacks:

Poverty: over 61% of the population live in dire poverty after decades of occupation and blockades. 40% of people live on less that $2 a day.

Dependency: around 80% of households rely on humanitarian assistance for survival.

Desperation: Human Rights Watch have described Gaza as ‘an open air prison’, with over 2 million people detained behind the so-called Iron Wall in less than 141 square miles.

Population:  Gaza is one of the most densely populated places on the planet. 1.7million people were already refugees.

Unemployment: Previous aggression by the occupying state has destroyed homes, hospitals, and the agricultural and fishing economies affecting the livelihoods of people. Gaza has the highest unemployment in the world.

An Unprecedented Humanitarian Disaster

Over 200 days of airstrikes and ground invasions have killed more than 34,000 civilians, and injured more than 77,000, with thousands more still missing under the rubble of destroyed buildings. Over 1.8 million people are desperately seeking shelter in already overcrowded refugee camps in the south. Meanwhile blockades on fuel, water, food and medical aid continue.

This most recent attack on the Palestinian people may be the most brutal yet. Over 6 months have passed, and with no ceasefire in sight, the population of Gaza face a humanitarian disaster. Your donations make a difference
