Since 2007, Gaza has been under a land, sea and air blockade imposed by Israel. 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.
60% of children are anaemic and many children suffer from stunted growth due to malnutrition.
Islamic Relief has been working in Gaza since 1997. We’ve been providing vital support to vulnerable people through donations towards our Gaza relief fund. Our work is focused on getting food to those who need it most, and treating urgent health needs.
Your support for Gaza will help our teams to deliver vital medical supplies to patients and staff. We also provide key items; such as medicine, disposables, medical kits and food for all.
Since 1997 Islamic Relief has invested almost €125 million in humanitarian and development programmes to support the Palestinian people.
