We will be responding to the current emergency in Gaza, where hospitals are struggling to cope with an influx of serious injuries. The already dire humanitarian situation in Gaza is worsening, as already struggling civilians in one of the most densely populated places on Earth, once more face the horror of major airstrikes. Power plants have run out of fuel which means Gaza is without electricity making it even more difficult to respond to those who need us the most.
After a needs assessment, we realised that the greatest need in Gaza is to support the hospitals with supplies. The Palestinian Minister of Health said that hospitals in Gaza are “working beyond their capacity to treat the wounded as a result of the occupation’s aggression, and as a result the hospitals in the Strip are out of service”.We will work closely alongside our partners on the ground to supply to prepare our humanitarian response and support as many hospitals as possible.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
More support will be needed as casualties are expected to continue to rise in the coming days. Your support will help ensure that Palestinian health workers have the medical resources they need.
We will be distributing lots of different medical supplies and survival items which include:
- Mattress and blankets
- Ready to eat kits
- Hot meals
- Winter Pjs for children
- Bread bags
- Food packs
- Milk and Nappies
- Mother and baby kits
- Sanitary pads
- Medical Supplies
- Surgical Equipment
Please consider donating to our emergency response today so we can respond rapidly to the growing health crisis
