WHAT IS HAPPENING IN GAZA, PALESTINE?
After violence erupted on Friday, the Palestinian Red Crescent Society has reported that more than 300 Palestinians have been injured. The death toll has reached 72 including 17 children. Medical resources are depleted and difficult to access.
The closure of Gaza limits access to educational, economic and other opportunities, medical care, clean water and electricity for the nearly 2 million Palestinians who live there.
Eighty percent of Gaza’s population depend on international humanitarian aid.
WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP?
AusRelief are currently working with organisations in Gaza to help provide urgent medicine and medical supplies, trauma surgery and emergency medical treatment as well as providing struggling families with food packs and hot meals. In addition, we are raising funds for a fully equipped ambulance to be given to the Palestinian Red Crescent Society to help alleviate some of the pressure Palestinians are currently facing.
