To help friends inside Gaza buy food & medicine

Spende geschützt
Friends, I used to work in Gaza City - it used to be a noisy, friendly chaotic city filled with life. Now much of the city has been bombed to rubble. The majority of Gazans, forced from their homes, now displaced in the ever more crowded and insecure southern Gaza Strip. Disease and acute hunger is ripping across Gaza.

At least twenty eight thousand people have been killed in Gaza since October last year. The situation is heartbreaking for Palestinians, and for Israeli families desperate for news about hostages.

I have friends surviving inside Gaza, and I want to help them. One friend, Faiza, has lost her home and is living in a tent in Rafah, trying to support her two young children. She is a single mother with elderly parents who also depend on her, and has no income at all. Another friend, Ola, is stranded in Khan Yunis with her entire family and struggling to find somewhere they can stay for the weeks ahead. I have spoken with Ola at least three times a week since October, when she has a connection, and understand how dire her situation is. Today's call was just 3 minutes because the Internet is now so infrequent and expensive.

Having worked as a humanitarian in Gaza, I have a connection with an official human rights network who can ensure these funds go directly to my friends. All funds I can raise to support Faiza and Ola and their families will therefore go directly to them, to support their families each day.

We don't know how long the horror of the war on Gaza will last: this is something we can do to help two families who have no other access to funds. It will make a huge difference to their lives because it will help them to buy food - which is now very expensive becasue it is in such short supply - and also phone vouchers so they can also try to find other members of their families across Gaza. These funds are for two families of civilians who need our support right now.

This is not about pity, it is about dignity - Palestinians in Gaza want to live dignified lives - to save their children - and their faith that the world does care about what is happening to them.

Please give if you can, and thank you if you can do so. You can also reach me directly via my website - with all my heart I think we can do something useful here - Louisa
