Gaza Emergency Relief Fund
Gaza families need your help rebuilding their homes and lives. Our team delivers help where needed most, overcoming the blockade to respond to massive destruction from Israel’s bombings in May, family by family. Our four Palestinian NGO partners identify families in crisis and provide financial transparency. Your donation builds livable homes for Gaza families or helps pay their rent, establishes small businesses for a source of income, and provides the food and clothing they desperately need.
Gaza families were already in desperate conditions before the May bombings. Families who were able to make a living before also need support now. The Israeli Army destroyed roads, apartments, and businesses. With no exports, few imports, and no means of production, jobs have plummeted- pushing unemployment above 50%, and >72% unemployment for youth under 30. This is beyond the economic collapse that the UN warned about. Families need a way to hold on as we press for an end to the blockade.
Huge problems – but to paraphrase Nabeel Hamdi, “To do something big, start small and start where it counts.” Let’s do this, child by child, family by family. This project provides flexible emergency intervention. Rebuilding Alliance’s NGO partners work with families to deliver nutritious food, rehabilitate barely-livable homes or provide rent or debt relief. Developing a stable income is key: we work with each family to help them plan & launch their small business. Your support restores hope.
The fragile ceasefire has been holding -but the economy is devastated: there are few jobs. Though vaccines are more available, COVID variants spread widely. Your investment in this project gives aid and hope to families in Gaza in in their time of dire need. Our Palestinian NGO partners provide case-by-case emergency aid to give assistance with kindness. What is the long-term impact of providing a lifeline when needed most? It can hold a family together, reducing danger. It can be invaluable.
