Eight years ago, the United Nations predicted that Gaza would be almost completely uninhabitable by 2020. Although two million people still live in Palestinian territory, the situation has, in fact, gone from bad to worse, just as the UN warned. When you see the condition of streets that families once called home, with many houses reduced to rubble, you understand that this is not a habitable land.
The conflict between Gaza and Israel has resulted in the continuous loss and harm of innocent lives. Husbands, wives, fathers, mothers, sons, and daughters have perished, and many more will suffer the same fate, both as a direct and indirect consequence of conflict.
Help Gaza Today
UK Islamic Mission is working around the clock to help the people of Palestine, and while our supporters have already done so much to help those most in need, there are still many more to reach. Unfortunately, we have limited funds and can only use the resources that come from your kind donations.
One of our proudest achievements so far in Gaza is the opening of a new children’s ward in Kamal Odwan Hospital, which has a capacity for 75 patients. On top of this, our donors have also provided other hospitals and medical facilities with essential supplies that have saved lives and health.
As good as all of this is, it barely scratches the surface. For every person that we do manage to help, thousands more are going without the necessities they need. For each child we clothe, thousands are cold; for every person we feed, many more are going hungry; and for every family we find shelter for, it just doesn’t bear thinking about how many more are on the street.
We desperately want to help every man, woman and child who needs help in Gaza, and it breaks our hearts that, for all our efforts, we cannot yet manage this. With your help, we can strive to achieve just that, but there is no time to lose.
