THE CAUSE – HELP REBUILD GAZA
In 2020, Islamic Relief in Gaza helped nearly 400,000 people with essential medical care, access to education, and skills training for unemployed youth.
The conflict in May 2021 setback any progress made by Palestinians in Gaza as they contend with the effects of the occupation and 15 year blockade
The latest escalation of violence has killed 253 Palestinians. Among the dead are 66 children, 39 women, and 17 older people.Almost 2,000 more have been injured and others are missing.
To make matters worse, 28 health care facilities were damaged in the conflict, and many are unable to seek the medical aid they desperately need. Damaged infrastructure caused by the bombing has also seen thousands of homes destroyed and has left many families homeless.
Islamic Relief is on the ground providing emergency and long-term assistance to bring ease to those who have lost considerably during the recent attacks on Gaza. This support includes distributing food hampers, distributing living essentials, repairing damaged homes, as well as fixing healthcare facilities and schools, and providing them with the equipment they need to run smoothly.
We will also be supporting special education centers and providing psychosocial support to affected families. Our plans also include supporting the repair of water systems so that homes have easy access to water.
