Gaza crisis continues
Those who spend their wealth in Allah’s cause are like grains of corn which produce seven ears, each bearing a hundred grains. (2:261)

For 15 terrifying days in May, Palestinians in Gaza faced endless nighttime bombings. The latest escalation killed 278 people in Gaza and injured over 9,000. Over 77,000 people had to flee their homes and around 30 clinics and hospitals were damaged, and Gaza’s only COVID-19 test centre was destroyed.
The effects of the war continue. Here’s how you can help.
We’re helping the most vulnerable families in Gaza through this crisis. Many are struggling simply for food and clean water, others have had their livelihoods destroyed, and hospitals need help treating patients. We’re supporting communities in Gaza through health, water, food, and livelihood projects, addressing all sides of the crisis.
Health and livelihoods
We’re working with local clinics and hospitals to provide urgent medicines, as well as fuel for generators so that when the daily power cuts occur, patients don’t die just because there’s no electricity.
For the next month, we’ll be supporting Hayfa medical centre, providing critical medicines, medical supplies, fuel, an ECG device (to monitor heartbeats).
You can also help us to provide jobs to 100 men and women who lost their employment during the war. For 6 months, we’re paying them to clear rubble and clean and paint schools in need of repair.
We continue to run an olive tree project in Gaza, supporting the livelihoods of farmers, including those affected by the recent escalation.
Water, shelter, and food
As the Delta variant COVID-19 rips through Gaza, we’re distributing hygiene kits and we’re trucking clean water to help protect 500 families against the virus. We’re also rehabilitating 5 water wells which were damaged during the war, as well as water networks and 2 sewage stations.
When you support our desalination plant in Rafah, you’ll help 60,000 people to have access to clean water every day.
In the coming weeks and months, we’ll be rebuilding over 100 damaged and deteriorated homes, helping 600 people's families to return home and live in a safe environment.
And we’re also continuing to support 1,000 affected families with food vouchers so that they don’t have to worry about food during this crisis, easing their burden while they try to rebuild their lives.
These projects are completely Zakat-eligible and an incredibly compassionate way to give your Zakat.
Your help so far
Your support for our Gaza Emergency Appeal allowed our Gaza team to get to work as soon as it was safe, distributing tonnes of essential medical supplies, 13,500 litres of fuel, and food to 731 families in the Gaza Strip in the most critical moments.
Human Appeal has been working in Palestine for 30 years, delivering life-saving aid, and empowering the most vulnerable. But we need your help today to help Gaza through the ongoing crisis, and to protect families from further harm, while the cameras are focused elsewhere.
The war has paused, but the crisis continues.

Those who spend their wealth [in Allah's way] by night and by day, secretly and publicly - they will have their reward with their Lord. And no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve.Quran 2:274
