Gaza Crisis Appeal

The humanitarian situation in Gaza is catastrophic. It is impossible to imagine the daily human suffering. Worse atrocities may unfold, with more than 1.4 million people – most of them displaced from the north – corralled into a small area in Rafah under renewed attack.
Through seven months of intense bombing, an ongoing siege and a land offensive, more than 35,000 people have now been killed and 78,000 injured. The extent of loss of life and destruction is unprecedented.

Woman and her child in Gaza

Gaza is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a women or child right now. 72% of those killed are innocent women and children, of whom more than 14,000 are children and at least 10,000 women, including 6,000 mothers.

The threat of famine is increasing by the day. Over 85% of the population, are estimated to be internally displaced from their homes. The health system has collapsed in Gaza. Aid convoys have been denied or impeded by Israeli authorities and those entering Gaza are not enough to meet the humanitarian needs of over 2.3 million people.

ActionAid is working with local partners to deliver food and cash assistance to families in Gaza. We urgently need your support to address immediate needs but also to prepare for the long-term requirements that will emerge.

Your support is needed now more than ever, please give what you can.

Meet Suhaila: A Mother’s Plea from Gaza

Suhaila and her family are among thousands in Gaza facing unimaginable hardships. Currently sheltering with eight others, Suhaila struggles to provide for her family amidst intense food shortages. Her two-year-old son battles diarrhoea, a consequence of the dire circumstances gripping the region.

She says: ‘We really need the basic necessities; it is difficult to get fresh drinking water. My youngest boy is two and a half years old. He is suffering from diarrhoea and stomach flu. He needs several changes of clothes, and nappies. Nappies are really expensive. We cannot afford them at times. ’

Your support can change the lives of mothers like Suhaila’s. Donate now to provide urgent relief to families in Gaza.

‘We need food supplies; we need food to feed our children. Aid does not come frequently. Sometimes we are able to get food, other times we can’t. We need food, medication, fresh water, and we really need clothes. It is freezing cold at night in our tent. None of us have extra clothes.’

ActionAid’s Response in Gaza

We call on the international community to support an immediate end to violence and to seek peace talks, as this represents the most effective means to protect civilians and realise human rights in both Israel and Gaza.

With more than 85% of the population forced to flee their homes, people are living in incredibly crowded, unsanitary and inhumane conditions. People’s basic human needs increasingly cannot be met – nine out of ten people are eating less than one meal a day and struggling to find drinkable water, according to the World Food Programme 80% of the population of Gaza were already living on humanitarian assistance, this poverty can only fully be addressed through ending the violence and occupation.
