Latest: Deadly airstrikes have killed 21 Palestinians.

Recent months have seen some of the deadliest attacks on civilians in the Occupied Palestinian Territory for many years.

More Israeli bombing has been reported this week, killing 21 Palestinians, and wounding 64 people, according to latest reports. Palestinian factions fired rockets into Israel following this afternoon’s bombings, with no casualties reported so far.

“The streets are otherwise eerily empty as people are terrified of what the next hours and days will bring. Banks, businesses and schools are shut and the crossings with Israel are closed so no goods or people are coming in or out.”

“This afternoon the bombing started again and I heard intense bombing around the city.” – Muneeb Abu-Ghazaleh, Islamic Relief Country Director in Gaza

Our teams on the ground are currently preparing to respond by working through local partners to provide urgently needed medical supplies, as well as food provision, and ready-to-eat meals for displaced families. Donate Now!

Why Gaza needs our help today


The Gaza Strip is one of the most densely populated places on Earth, with 2.1 million Palestinians living under a 15-year land, sea, and air blockade.


The situation in Gaza is unbearable for many, with recurring conflict, occupation, and blockade causing deep poverty and suffering. A third of the people in Palestine live below the poverty line, with thousands of families struggling with financial hardship. Your donations can provide Gaza, Palestine, with the help it needs. Donate now and help save Palestine.

Damaged infrastructure caused by the intermittent bombing has also resulted in vital infrastructures, such as homes, schools, and medical facilities, being damaged and destroyed. The inability to access resources has exacerbated the suffering in Gaza, Palestine.

We take comfort in this poignant verse of the Holy Qur’an in which Allah (SWT) tells us:


“Not a leaf falls but that He knows it.”[Al An’am, 6:59]

Reality of Gaza

Years of conflict have left 80% of the population dependent on humanitarian assistance to survive. 95% of the population does not have access to clean water, with ongoing power shortages affecting essential services like health, water, and sanitation.

Almost half of Gaza’s population does not have enough food, with the majority of children in Gaza being anaemic and suffering from stunted growth due to malnutrition. The ongoing siege has sealed off Gaza from the rest of the world, crippling the economy and trapping residents in a cycle of poverty. A generation of young people has no hope of prospects for development, forcing 70% of the youth into unemployment.

Intermittent attacks and bombings in Gaza have left vital infrastructure in shambles. Schools, homes, and medical facilities are destroyed, along with the livelihoods of tens of thousands of people. 

After many years of conflict, Palestinians still feel unsafe in their own country. Fear and a lack of hope for the future have become the norm among young people in Gaza. Political insecurity and the ongoing conflict have damaged the economy.

To rebuild Gaza, we must provide emergency and long-term care for the most vulnerable in the community.
