There is no place safe in Gaza. Every place is targeted.”
Dr Lubna Sabah, Director of Health, Near East Council of Churches

The population in Gaza is experiencing a humanitarian disaster. Our Christmas emergency appeal is for our partners in Gaza and our partners’ vital work in the West Bank.

We do not know what the coming days will hold, but we know they desperately need our ongoing support. The bombardment of Gaza has led to over 15,000 deaths, over 6,000 of these are children. There is no accurate count for the number injured, which is many more than this and over 1.7 million Gazans have been displaced from their homes.

Throughout December, all donations will be doubled* so your money can have an even greater impact.

On the 17th of October, we heard the appalling news of the strike on our partner, Al Ahli Arab Hospital in Gaza City, that left hundreds dead. It re-opened the next day to treat patients and has continued to operate since.

It has been inundated with hundreds of patients as it is one of the only hospitals still operating in Gaza City, despite in the days before the ceasefire being surrounded by tanks, cut off and running out of essential medical supplies and fuel.

“We will not abandon our wounded and injured. We will do our utmost to help them and stand by their side.” Dr Fadel Naim — orthopaedic surgeon at Al Ahli Arab Hospital

The ceasefire has meant that families who had no fuel, food, or drinkable water have been able to get some supplies — but there remain desperate shortages with people trying to find shelter wherever they can.

Mahmoud from our partner Near East Council of Churches (NECC), whose apartment was destroyed by an Israeli bomb in Gaza City, is one of the 1,000,000+ trying to shelter in the south of the strip with his young family, trying to get whatever food and water they can.

Your support has allowed us to:

  • send vital funds to the Al Ahli Arab Hospital
  • provide food and water for some of the 1,000’s sheltering in the church, hospital and community buildings in Gaza City
  • enable the Gaza Sunbirds para-cycling team to provide essential food parcels to their communities.

However, this is not the only Palestinian population that bears no responsibility for Hamas’s awful attack that left so many Israelis dead on the 7th of October.

There is also a crisis in the West Bank. All the cities, towns and villages have been locked down, hundreds have been killed and many more arrested or injured.

Settlers have forced the population from villages in the South Hebron Hills and many more have been made homeless. We must continue to support our partners there at this critical time.

So please give what you can to our Christmas appeal
Throughout December, all donations will be doubled* so your money can have an even greater impact. 

And as you give, please join us in calling for an ongoing ceasefire and the creation of humanitarian corridors into all parts of Gaza, a cessation of violence and the release of hostages, that all parties are held accountable under international law and that there is a renewed effort to establish a just, long-term peace.
