Limited supplies have entered the Gaza Strip through the Rafah Crossing with 51 UNICEF trucks delivering water, medical supplies and hygiene kits.
Since the violence escalated on 7 October 2023, large parts of Gaza’s infrastructure, including critical water and sanitation systems, has been reduced to rubble. Almost a million people are displaced, around half of them children, and many have taken shelter in overcrowded shelters with extremely limited access to water, sanitation and hygiene – conditions that are especially dangerous for young children.
Access is difficult and limited, but our teams won’t give up trying to get critical supplies to children. By donating today, you can help us be there for children and families in desperate need.
- Provide immediate assistance with a much-needed one-off donation
- Support your chosen appeal* with funds targeted to a specific area of UNICEF’s work
- Or make a single donation to wherever your help is currently needed most
*Unless the funds raised for the appeal exceed the programming requirements
