Emergency Appeal for Families in Gaza

Mahmoud family take shelter in disused storage shed

Following the deadly conflict in Gaza in 2014 which destroyed and damaged hundreds of thousands of homes, hospitals, schools and key water and electricity infrastructure, families in Gaza are still waiting to go home.

More than 100,000 people remain homeless. A further 500,000 are struggling with partially damaged homes which they cannot afford to repair. The World Bank states that Gaza’s unemployment rate is 44%, while 40% of Gaza’s 1.8 million Palestinians live in poverty. 

Welfare Association is providing essential repairs to partially damaged homes: to roofs, windows, doors and repairing walls with holes. Homes will be safe, secure and weatherproof so families may return and resume their daily lives. 

A year has passed and these families need to go home. Please help us make this happen. Donate now!
