    Need

    In Gaza, the lives of thousands of people have been destroyed due to the conflict. Water supplies have been decimated. Hospitals and homes have been turned to rubble. Livelihoods have been wiped out. Many thousands of people are sheltering in schools and other public buildings, and conditions are becoming increasingly desperate. 900,000 people have no - or extremely restricted - access to safe water. More than 200,000 people need food assistance.

    Solution

    Oxfam has teams on the ground providing immediate relief. Our emergency response includes:
    - delivering safe drinking water to people who have fled their homes
    - distributing hygiene kits to people in shelters
    - distributing emergency food vouchers to help people buy essential supplies
    - distributing food packages to the most vulnerable
    - helping with emergency healthcare through support to a hospital.
