Emergency in Gaza

As the violence continues to escalate in Gaza, Palestinian refugee families suffer greatly. The number of civilian casualties, many women and children, continues to grow. Children, still dealing with the trauma of the last military operation in 2008/2009, are severely affected. And many homes and other buildings, including UNRWA schools, health clinics and food distribution centers, have been damaged. Fuel, electricity and water shortages are also serious concerns at this time.

Despite the challenges, UNRWA is ready to provide whatever emergency protection, aid and support is needed at this difficult time. UNRWA's dedicated staff is providing vital emergency health care and relief, and has formed shelter and emergency teams to assist the displaced as necessary. You can help UNRWA give urgent protection and support to those suffering in this conflict by making a tax-deductible donation here:
