As violence escalates in Gaza, women and children are most at risk.
Airstrikes in early May have destroyed apartment buildings, leaving thousands of families homeless. The attacks have displaced around 34,000 Palestinians including children¹.
Seven schools and a health centre that was providing Covid-19 testing and vaccines have also been destroyed.
ActionAid is working in Gaza with local partners to monitor the situation closely and to provide support to some of the worst-hit families.
In response to the escalating crisis, ActionAid is working to provide food and assistance to displaced families who are sheltering in schools.
- Immediate assistance to 1,660 displaced families, (7,248 people) with food, household items (mattresses, blankets, kitchenware), dignity and hygiene kits
- Provision of emergency medical supplies
- Purchase of fuel for generators and mobile clinics
- Creation of safe spaces for women and psychosocial support for traumatised children and their families
