Escalation in violence
Gaza is in the middle of a humanitarian catastrophe. In recent days, there has been a significant escalation in violence and life is at a standstill for many. Your help is needed now more than ever.
The situation is expected to further deteriorate. As of 8 October 2023, the Palestinian Ministry of Health reported that nearly 200 Palestinians have been killed and 1,610 injured in the latest bout of violence. A state of emergency has been declared in all Palestinian hospitals.
The Palestinian Ministry of Education has suspended all classes in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, leaving children without access to education.
Thousands have fled their homes in search of safety and protection.
After decades of suffocating under siege, more than 2 million Palestinians can’t meet their most basic needs.
With ongoing violence, Palestinians face drastic shortages in food and medicine supply, and restricted access to healthcare and education.
- 1.75 million people are food insecure with limited access to food or enable to meet their basic food needs.
- 1.5 million Palestinians don’t have access to essential healthcare services
- 1.36 million Palestinians don’t have access to clean and safe drinking water
- 800,000 Palestinians now live below the poverty line
- 579, 173 children don’t have safe and equitable access to education
