Palestine is a country situated in the Middle East with a long and rich history. Despite this abundance of culture, it’s a region that has long been facing a large amount of stress. The Palestinians are struggling with a limited water supply, food insecurity, poverty, and a lack of healthcare facilities. As a result, millions are suffering and thousands more are dying. However, with your help, we can make a difference for the struggling inhabitants of Palestine.
Orphans in Need is a UK based Palestine charity, providing life-saving support to people whose lives have been devastated by poverty, food insecurity, limited healthcare, and an array of other issues. In order for our charity to help Palestine, we rely on your generous donations.
The Situation in Palestine
The Gaza strip in Palestine is one of the most densely populated areas across the globe, with a population of roughly 21 million. As many as 95% of the population don’t have access to clean water on top of a seemingly endless power shortage. The shortages are not exclusive to food and power, with nearly 50% of Gaza’s population not being able to obtain enough food. As a result, roughly 60% of Gaza’s children are anaemic, whilst many others stop growing as a consequence of malnutrition. Due to this countless list of issues, 80% of the population are now relying on humanitarian assistance as a means of survival.
