Why Do They Need Your Help?
It’s a conflict with no end. A decade of fighting, war and violence has stripped innocent Palestinians from their homes, left children orphaned in the streets, left parents carrying their bloodied children towards demolished hospitals.
The current attacks lasted 11 days and left at least 255 people dead, hundreds more injured, many displaced. Over 2.2 million people are in need of humanitarian aid, with 80% of the population of the Gaza Strip alone relying on humanitarian aid to survive. Currently, Palestinian’s fear for their future and safety as a fragile ceasefire is in place.
What most people don’t see is the long term effect of the constant vicious cycle of conflict and violence. Children and young adults especially suffer from post-traumatic stress leaving them crippled, unable to deal with everyday tasks. The streets are covered in dirt, debris and destroyed buildings, a constant reminder that they are living in the middle of chaos.
