Provide lifesaving emergency aid to the people of Palestine.
With over a month of nearly non-stop bombing and the imposition of a total blockade, unprecedented in centuries – no food, water, medical aid, or fuel – humanitarian disaster has struck virtually every single one of Gaza’s 2.3 million people:
1,700 children missing
41,000+ homes destroyed
1.6 million displaced
22 hospitals out of service
285 educational facilities damaged
625,000 students lack access to education
2 of 3 water pipelines not functioning
A humanitarian catastrophe beyond any witnessed in the modern era is unfolding in Gaza: total siege deliberately cutting off 2.3 million people from water, food, energy sources, medicine, and sanitation. This is sure to cause widespread death and lethal disease, even beyond an unrelenting, deadly air, land, and sea bombing campaign that has dropped explosive power equal to more than one-quarter of the Nagasaki and Hiroshima atom bombs in its first 10 days. The unprecedented assault has displaced more than 1 million Palestinians, half of them children. They absolutely require delivery of rapid, continuous, and massive aid to save the literally hundreds of thousands of Palestinian lives now on the precipice of death.
The people of Gaza desperately need your lifesaving donations now. We are staging aid ready to rush in as soon as a humanitarian aid corridor opens.
