The realities on the ground for 4 million Palestinians today show a society that is in dire need of humanitarian assistance: > More than 65% of the population is living in poverty. > Nearly 50% does not have a stable supply of food. > 265,000 people are unemployed, and 24% of employed people have not received salaries since March 2006. > 70% of the population is not connected to a sewerage system, and up to 80% of the areas water supply is distributed without being treated.
Since 2005, CHF International has been a leading provider of humanitarian assistance aid here, providing critical services for thousands of unemployed, vulnerable families.
By creating jobs and providing skills-training, CHF's work is providing aid that not only meets the immediate needs of vulnerable families, but lays the foundation for them to help themselves in the long-term.
