The situation in Palestine needs no introduction. During recent escalation of the ongoing violence, over 200 Palestinians including dozens of children have been killed and hundreds have been wounded. Thousands of lives have been affected.
Despite the ceasefire, which is no doubt a relief, at least 1.9 million Palestinians still experience, or are at risk of, conflict and violence, displacement and denial of access to livelihoods, among other threats.
MAA conducted a needs assessment, and launched an Emergency Appeal to assist with essential humanitarian aid in Jerusalem and Gaza. With your support, we have already been able to provide general medical aid and supplies, clothes, dignity kits for our sisters, and food packs.
The most vulnerable Palestinians are currently denied or restricted in their access to essential services such as water and health care.
Denied freedom of movement and many human rights, thousands of Palestinians are stuck in limbo, unable to enter or leave the Gaza Strip. As a result, they lack access to adequate medical care, and the ability to work and pursue education.
MAA has provided humanitarian aid to Palestine for decades now, and continues to do so where its relief work does not only revolve around emergency relief, it also focuses on the long-term rebuilding and rehabilitation of those who have been suffering for such a long time.
Donate generously to support the Palestine Emergency Appeal and help the people in Palestine.
