Summary

As violence continues to escalate in Gaza, women and children are most at risk. Israeli airstrikes are destroying schools, homes, and medical facilities, leaving thousands homeless. ActionAid will provide food, shelter, and psychosocial support to the most vulnerable and marginalized families in Gaza who have lost everything during the airstrikes.

Challenge

Reports from Gaza suggest that attacks by Israel have displaced more than 38,000 Palestinians, nearly half of them women and children. Seven schools and one health center providing Covid-19 testing and vaccines have been destroyed. Thousands of individuals and families have been displaced as their homes are completely or partially destroyed.

Solution

ActionAid works in communities near the border with Israel that have been most directly affected by the violence. This project will support some of the most vulnerable and marginalized people in Gaza, including women, children, older adults, and people living with disabilities. ActionAid is providing food, shelter, medicine, and other essential items, as well as 'safe spaces' where women can access legal support, counselling, and skills training.

Long-Term Impact

IbrahimIbraigheth, who is leading ActionAid's response in Palestine, shares: "Once again it is women and children who will bear the brunt of this recent escalation in violence. Families in Gaza were already facing appalling levels of poverty and exclusion, and this week's hostilities will see their situation deteriorate further." ActionAid's support provides both short-term crisis response as well as long-term resilience building.
