Seconds To Destroy, Years To Rebuild
The massive destruction and displacement currently being experienced by the Palestinian people of Gaza is causing a mounting humanitarian crisis. With tens of thousands of families displaced by aerial bombardments, scores of people killed and injured, hundreds of homes and buildings destroyed, and essential supplies in short supply, this is a crisis we cannot turn away from.
At least 77000 people internally displaced
At least 278 Palestinians have died, including 66 children and 39 women
At least 9000 Palestinians have been injured
At least 678 homes severely damaged
At least 230 buildings destroyed
58 schools are sheltering the homeless
25,000 people have restricted access to water
At least 11 health facilities damaged
We Can’t Raise The Dead, But We Can Help The Living Thrive
The death, destruction and suffering being lived through by the people of Gaza will not be halted with a ceasefire – it will take years to rectify the damage. On top of the human cost of those killed or injured in the fighting, homes, businesses, and infrastructure has been destroyed, and a healthcare system already creaking with the burden of COVID-19 is now struggling to meet the needs of the victims of conflict.
But together we can help them survive the present, and prepare for the future.
