Since October 7th, innocent civilians have been relentlessly attacked, with entire areas being reduced to rubble. Over 15,000 have been killed, more than 6,000 of whom are children. 1.7 million Palestinians have been displaced from their homes, resulting in severe over-crowding of safe spaces, and millions living in flimsy tents.
There is an alarming shortage of food and clean water, leaving people more vulnerable than ever. Hospitals have been impacted with the healthcare system close to collapse.
As a result, thousands of injured and unwell people have been unable to get the care they desperately need. Entire families have died, leaving no one behind, while thousands of children have been left alone as all their loved ones have died.
Gaza is experiencing disasters within disasters, as alongside hostilities and escalations of violence there is hunger, thirst and disease which poses serious threats to life. The people are in need of urgent humanitarian support and for a permanent ceasefire to be put in place. There is a crucial need of food, clean water, warm clothing, shelter and life-saving medical care and supplies.
Muslim Charity has been working in Gaza since 2013, we have previously partnered with UNRWA which has given us unparalleled access to Gaza whenever there has been an emergency.
Now, with your donations, Alhamdulillah, we have been able to provide vital support to our brothers and sisters in Gaza. We are distributing vital food, clean water and medical aid, reaching thousands of people. 13,000 people have benefited from our distribution of food parcels, and a further 7,500 hot meals have also been provided.
Our teams have distributed 400 gallons of clean water, helping 2,400 people who would otherwise have to rely on dirty, unsafe water. We are working with hospitals and have provided medical supplies that will help 30,000 people, insha’Allah.
There is so much more we need to do for the people of Gaza. Donate now to support our emergency appeal and help us support even more people in need.
