Gaza is undergoing a severe crisis with hospitals in desperate need of medical supplies due to escalating violence. The attacks have led to widespread displacement, with many living in overcrowded conditions or makeshift tents. The region is facing acute shortages of food and clean water, heightening the vulnerability of its inhabitants. The healthcare system is nearing collapse, leaving many without necessary medical care.

Since 2013, Muslim Charity has been supporting needy Palestinian families in Gaza, allowing prompt response in emergencies. With your generous donations, we’ve provided crucial support, including food, clean water and medical aid, reaching thousands. Our recent efforts include distributing food parcels, serving hot meals, supplying clean water and supporting the needy with medical supplies. However, the needs in Gaza remain vast. Your donations are vital to our emergency appeal, enabling us to extend our assistance to more people in dire need.
