The people of Gaza need you!

There is currently an acute humanitarian crisis in Gaza. 1.9 million people have been forced from their homes as a result of the attacks and the entire population is at risk of starvation. Without hospitals, water and food, the situation is desperate.

Oxfam is on the ground and has so far reached over 300,000 people in Gaza, providing winter kits with blankets and other items to keep warm, food parcels with fresh vegetables, and cash assistance. Oxfam and partners are distributing hygiene kits, medicine and first aid to particularly vulnerable women. We train midwives and distribute kits to new mothers for the first critical period after childbirth. With your gift, we can reach even more people.
