Gaza Emergency relief for U.S. supporters
As families face daily bombardment, half of Gaza is starving, there is no safe place left, and people are at risk of multiple epidemics.
$70 – Help us to provide treatment at our mobile clinic in Rafah.
$95 - Help provide a family hygiene kit.
$100 – Can provide a nutritious food parcel to a family for a month.
$170 - Provide one family-sized warm blanket, and one family-sized mattress to protect a displaced family from sleeping on the floor of their shelter.
$250 - Can contribute towards providing a family with a waterproof and fire-resistant tent.
More than 30,000 people have been killed, including over 12,300 children. Over 69,000 people have been wounded, and 7,000 are still missing and suspected to be dead and under the rubble – half of them are children.
We are also deeply concerned about hunger and hygiene supplies in Gaza. With most people struggling to eat every day and concerning signs of epidemic diseases, we’re urging for more aid to be permitted into Gaza.
Isolation and displacement
A complete siege has cut 2.3 million people off from food, water, fuel and electricity. Even before this escalation, families struggled to access food and water – 97% of water in Gaza was already too contaminated to drink.
The electricity supply to Gaza has been cut, plunging overcrowded hospitals into chaos.
Hospitals and ambulances continue to be struck, and over 200 healthcare workers killed.
A staggering 70% of Gaza’s homes are damaged or destroyed as thousands of people continue to flee the bombing on foot. More than 1.9 million people have been forced to flee their homes, seeking shelter in homes, makeshift shelters, hospitals and UN schools in the south; most do not know if their home is still standing.
We stand together in this urgent appeal to support the resilient people of Gaza. Your donation can provide critical aid in these trying times. Help us alleviate the suffering and make a real impact.
A legacy of support
Human Appeal has been providing vital humanitarian support and development projects in Palestine for 32 years.
Our local team has been providing daily distributions since the start of the bombing in Gaza, providing food, hygiene kits, clean water, medical supplies, and, now, waterproof tents.
So far, you’ve helped us to support over 573,000 people. Our waterproof and fire-resistant tents have been installed across 29 schools across the south of Gaza, and our water desalination plant is currently operating for six-to-seven hours a day, providing 57,000 litres of clean water each hour.
We’ve delivered five planes full of aid – that’s over 120 tons – in partnership with Jordan Hashemite Charity Organisation (JHCO). This essential relief has already provided $1.5 million worth of medicines including antibiotics, anesthesia, items for surgery, rehabilitation, infant care, pain relief, and prenatal vitamins.
One more plane is now being loaded with medical aid in Jordan and will shortly arrive in Gaza, via Egypt.
Our convoy of three shipping containers has also entered Gaza, providing over 36 tons of food, 32 crates of winter clothing, as well as 2,000 blankets, and 2,000 mattresses.
We’re urgently appealing for your continued help to provide lifesaving aid in Gaza.
Stand with us and make a difference to families in Gaza.

Please note that items in Gaza are subject to change regularly; in the event that we cannot secure specific items, we will instruct for items that are very similar.
