THE PEOPLE OF GAZA NEED US NOW MORE THAN EVER
The recent escalation of violence in Gaza, Palestine is the most severe flare-up between Israel and Gaza since the 11-day conflict in May 2021. The death toll from the Israeli assault on Gaza rose to 44, including sixteen children! More than 300 people have been injured.
We urgently need your help to deliver urgent medical supplies to support an overstretched healthcare system.
The children and families in Gaza are already under so many restrictions and blockades, and now they are also facing heartbreaking injuries and violence. The horrible assaults on Gazan civilians are expected to continue which will only impact an already dire humanitarian situation.
“The believing men and believing women are allies of one another. They enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and establish prayer and give charity and obey Allah and His Messenger. Allah will have mercy upon them, for Allah is Almighty and Wise.”(Quran: 9:71)
The least we can do is sacrifice our money to help Palestine!
Our Palestinian brothers and sisters are sacrificing their lives daily to protect their rights and land. The least we can do is support them financially to be able to survive these very tough conditions. Penny Appeal Australia is working fast to reach as many Palestinians in need through the distribution of urgent food packs, water and medical supplies.
More than 1.5 million Palestinians are food insecure and lack the resources to put substantial meals on the table.
The suffering continues for the people of Palestine as hunger, poverty and conflict continue to significantly strain an already ailing economy.
The population continues to face significant humanitarian and protection challenges that include a continuing need to support more than two million Palestinians experiencing a constant threat to survival in the form of conflict, violence, displacement, and a denial of access to employment livelihoods and education.
More than 50% of the population is unemployed and nearly 2.1 million people, the entire population of Gaza, are at risk of contracting waterborne diseases such as diarrhoea and dehydration due to a water crisis created by the ongoing blockade.
As the West Bank is almost entirely dependent on some form of humanitarian aid for survival, experts say that the current airstrikes in Gaza will only compound the crisis, with more than 2 million Palestinians under blockade since 2007, leaving 80% of Gazans dependent on some form of humanitarian aid.
The Prophet (PBUH) said, “The believing men and believing women are allies of one another. They enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and establish prayer and give charity and obey Allah and His Messenger. Allah will have mercy upon them, for Allah is Almighty and Wise.”Al-Bukhari
MORE ON THE SITUATION
Humanitarian needs continue to be driven by the conflict and recurring violent clashes leave many Palestinians struggling to live a life with dignity.
The mobility restrictions imposed since the outbreak of COVID-19 amplify the impact of a declining unemployment rate, and increase the number of children unable to access an education or attend school.
