The Gaza Strip is home to a population of approximately 1.9 million people, including some 1.4 million Palestine refugees.

The bombing campaign by the Israeli Military has left Gaza in a worse state than it was already in. The situation is desperate.

Over 60,000 people are sheltering in UNWRA schools and health clinics, some of them damaged by bombing themselves. More than 100,000 Gazans have been displaced by the violence and have lost everything.

I have seen first hand the amazing work UNWRA do and believe them already being in place puts them in the best position to help Gaza. They have the trust of all sides and don't care about factions or other things. Their sole purpose is to save lives and make Palestinians lives better. 

Background of Gaza

The last decade, the socioeconomic situation in Gaza has been in steady decline. The blockade on land, air and sea continues to have a devastating effect.

Years of conflict and blockade have left 80 per cent of the population dependent on international assistance. The economy and its capacity to create jobs have been devastated.

The number of Palestine refugees relying on UNRWA for food assistance has increased from fewer than 80,000 in 2000 to almost one million today. Access to clean water and electricity remains at crisis level and impacts nearly every aspect of life in Gaza. 

UNRWA is the only UN agency dedicated to supporting Palestine refugees, and that’s why I have started this fundraising. Will you join me?

Your donation will allow UNRWA to continue to provide lifesaving services to Palestine refugees. From emergency cash and food assistance to education and healthcare, UNRWA is transforming the lives of Palestine refugee children and their families every day.


Please donate to my campaign, anything you can give is a huge help. 

With gratitude

Established by the UN General Assembly in 1949, our mission is to assist Palestine refugees in achieving their full potential until a just and lasting solution to the refugee crisis is found. The Agency provides services to Palestine refugees in Gaza, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, and the West Bank (including East Jerusalem).

 

Over the past seven decades, Palestine refugees have experienced extremes in violence, suffering and injustice. As a result, they are confronted with daunting human development and protection challenges, which stand to arrest their significant potential. Humanitarian conditions across much of the UNRWA areas of operation are grave, exacerbated by protracted conflict and the lack of political progress. Read more about our mission and achievments.
