Fundraiser for Gaza

Donation protected
Who we are?
We are a group of Ireland based photographers who are raising funds for humanitarian aid in Gaza. Collectively we devastated by the humanitarian crisis engulfing the region and want to help.

In solidarity with the courageous photographers risking their lives to document these horrors, including @motaz, @byplestia, @wizard_bisan1, and @eyeonpalestine, we want to give back through the gift of photography.

Why?
Nearly 2 million lives have been forever changed by the conflict in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territory, most of whom are women and children. Alarming statistics reveal a dire situation, with health authorities estimating that at least 15,523 Palestinians have lost their lives in the latest escalation, and a staggering 70 percent of these casualties (42 003 people) are believed to be women and children. So many kids, whose dreams blown up. 

Many more Palestinians are missing, awaiting rescue or recovery beneath the rubble, according to UNRWA. About 1.9 million people, nearly 80% of Gaza's population, are estimated to be internally displaced - WHO 

Where your money will go?
We are donating all monies raised to Medical Aid for Palestinians. Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP) works for the health and dignity of Palestinians living under occupation and as refugees.

MAP’s permanent team in Gaza were the first to respond to the current emergency by releasing more than US$570,000 worth of pre-positioned stocks of drugs, medical disposables, and other humanitarian supplies held in our warehouses to hospitals and shelters.

Working in the most challenging of circumstances, MAP's team have sourced and delivered more than US$1 million of humanitarian supplies from the local market. This includes medicines, disposables and lab reagents for hospitals, and mattresses, blankets and hygiene kits for thousands of people displaced from their homes and sheltering elsewhere.

Where local stocks are unavailable, they are seeking to procure from outside Gaza to be brought in as soon as crossings open and aid is allowed in safely. MAPS are working with UN and NGO partners to advocate for immediate, unimpeded, and safe access for humanitarian supplies and personnel into Gaza.

All monies raised will be donated directly to Medical Aid for Palestinians.
