URGENT: Combatting COVID-19 in Gaza

Donate Now!

The situation in Palestine is now critical. The Israeli occupation has stopped all fuel deliveries into Gaza, resulting in electricity shortages to health facilities, schools and quarantine centres. This infrastructure is critical to containing another deadly outbreak of coronavirus.

In the face of a deadly second wave, ActionAid has had to double its emergency response. With your urgent support we can reach more of those in need by:

  • Communicating life saving prevention information
  • Providing protective equipment for health care workers
  • Creating safe spaces for women at increased risk of domestic violence
  • distributing food parcels and hygiene kits for women who have experienced gender-based violence and other vulnerable families

Can you help women protect their communities from the impacts of COVID-19? Make a donation now.

ActionAid's COVID-19 Response

Your donation

As per ActionAid Australia’s emergency fundraising standards, 90% of funds raised from this appeal will go to our emergency response and 10% to fundraising and administration. This is a global appeal so we will be directing funds where there is greatest need and to programs supporting women leading responses to COVID-19.
In the event that funds raised exceed the amount required, to meet the immediate and longer term needs of the people impacted by the COVID-19 crisis, ActionAid Australia will direct donations to our Arise Humanitarian Fund, which helps provide disaster preparedness response and recovery for future emergencies.
