No roof or wall. A blanket from you kept a Gaza family warm this winter

Gaza families send a warm thank you to all the wonderful donors for shielding them against the harsh winter. Your support enabled Rebuilding Alliance's NGO partners in Gaza to distribute blankets, heaters, and plastic tarps for roofs to those most in need.

Since its launch, this project has been helping beleaguered families in Gaza in various ways, through the provision of relief during the bombing of May 2021, undertaking home repairs, payment of loans, house rents, medical care etc. Your support has helped thousands of people in Gaza. 

Rebuilding Alliance learned from its NGO partners in Gaza about the challenges Gaza families were facing due to the cold weather. We decided on a winter intervention, and $8,000 was allocated toward this initiative.  

Our partners at Women Programs Center-Rafah distributed blankets among 46 families, giving three blankets to each family. These families live in Rafah and Khan Younis. A staff member of WPC-R shared, "When we reached their houses, we saw the poor living conditions of these families. The families thanked us and prayed for us." 

A beneficiary said, "Thank you! We badly needed these blankets. Our bodies could not bear the cold. As you can see, we don't live in houses. We live in tents, and the cold reaches us from all sides."

El Amal Rehabilitation Organization gave out electric heaters to 100 families with little to no income. These families are struggling on so many levels, financial and social, and the winter season should not be an added challenge, says Bahaa with our partner organization, El Amal. Heating can provide comfort and prevent cold-related illnesses such as hypothermia and pneumonia. A warm and comfortable home improves the overall quality of life of low-income families. 

Youth Vision Society reached out to 45 families with blankets, two for each family, and rainproof tarps. These families live in Beach Refugee Camp, one of the most marginalized areas of Gaza. The houses are old, and nearly half of them are in need of restoration. Families that live in houses with old asbestos roofs that leak during rain were especially prioritized for assistance. Nylon tarps were laid on the roofs by YVS staff members. These supplies helped these families get through the winter.

Our partners, Al Basma Club for the Disabled, work with persons with disabilities in Gaza and maintain a database of these people. ABCD wanted to help the disabled persons of the Gaza community with a supply of diapers and hygiene kits. A total of 100 disabled people benefited from these supplies, including children, young children and the elderly.

Thank you for keeping hundreds of Gaza people warm this winter and making all this wonderful work possible.

In the wake of the May 2023 Gaza bombing that lasted five days, our NGO partners provided 200 families in Gaza with essential food supplies. Please let your family and friends know about this effort. 

Thanks for all that you do!
