What is happening?
In Gaza with approximately 2 million Palestinian population, humanitarian crisis has still been continuing since 2007 due to internal conflict and ongoing embargos. Many people have lost their lives and thousands of people have injured because of the Great March of Return which still is ongoing. 1 million 300 thousand people still needs humanitarian aid due to the lack of sheltering, food and healthcare services.
What do we do?
