Yet again the people of Palestine are in great danger. Orphans in Need are providing much-needed support to orphans and widows in Gaza.
The situation is extremely serious and is expected to deteriorate further. Families have been forced to leave their homes, their lives shattered by the devastating effects of the conflict. The constant bombings have resulted in thousands of deaths and countless injuries. Buildings have been completely destroyed, leaving those who have survived in urgent need of immediate assistance.
There are more than 22,000 orphans living in Palestine, where Orphans in Need currently supports over 5,000 orphans and widow families. They are all facing unimaginable risks to their safety and the recent escalation has left thousands of widows in its wake. All of whom have difficult decisions to make as they don’t know how to support their orphan children.
Orphans in Palestine
There are more than 22,000 orphans living in Palestine who desperately need support.
Widows & Orphans
Orphans in Need currently supports over 5,000 orphans and widow families.
Our dedicated team has been on the ground since the start of the conflict, responding by delivering relief parcels containing life-saving food, water and hygiene items to orphans and widows.
With the situation deteriorating rapidly, and food and water supplies running out, we need your continued support to provide urgent relief.
Orphans in Need has been working with organisations in Palestine for over a decade now. Despite the challenges and difficulties, our dedicated team based in Gaza is doing their utmost to oversee the response. Our team has experienced personal loss, but is still committed to helping orphaned and widowed families.
Thanks to your unwavering support, we have already distributed thousands of food parcels and delivered daily meals and bottled water. With your help, we continue to do so.
“The good news is that we are still distributing food aid as we are utilising existing stocks of food items on a pre-approved credit basis.”, says Mohamed Maigag, Director of Programmes at Orphans in Need.
With your help, we can continue working to make a difference in Palestine. Please give generously to our Gaza Appeal now.
