Palestine Emergency Appeal

Palestine Emergency: A third of the people in Palestine live below the poverty line.

The situation in Palestine is unbearable for many. Gaza has been described as an “open-air prison”. Conditions in Gaza were dire even before the recent escalations in conflict, with occupation, blockade and recurring conflict causing deep poverty and suffering.

Overnight, simmering tensions in the Middle East appear to have tipped into an unprecedented escalation, sparking fears that the situation may deteriorate in the coming hours and days. The Palestinian Health Ministry says at least 198 people have been killed and more than 1,600 wounded in Gaza in Israeli retaliation after a Hamas attack killed at least 40.

We are closely monitoring the situation and our local partners remain on standby to provide humanitarian aid.
