Response to Humanitarian Crisis

Decades of conflict have inflicted unimaginable humanitarian crises throughout the region. Generations of Palestinians have struggled with poverty, and limited access to their basic needs. Citizens face food insecurity, inadequate healthcare, restricted movement, and more. All of this impacts their daily lives and prospects for stability. The Zakat Foundation has been delivering vital assistance to Gaza and the West Bank since 2001. Our continuous Emergency Relief initiatives have furnished life-saving aid during periods of unrest and aided in the repairing and reconstructing damaged homes. We've also empowered families and bolstered their livelihoods through greenhouse projects and affordable drinking water for livestock animals as part of our agriculture program. In Gaza, our Healthcare and Well-Being program has covered the costs of life-saving treatment for pediatric cancer patients and ensured they receive nutritious meals to help them during this challenging time. In the grim context of conflict, many orphaned children need support, we offer them access to education, healthcare, food security, and more.

Our Work in Gaza

Through a variety of programs, we are impacting thousands of lives. The occupied territory of the Gaza Strip makes day-to-day life an unimaginable struggle for its residents. Access to essentials and traveling is limited, which requires Zakat Foundation to increase our support and invest in the people. With your help, we are making a lasting impact on the lives of those who need it most.
