Love Palestine

  • At least 1.9 million Palestinians are experiencing violence, conflict, denial of access to employment, and other threats. Palestinians have very limited access to basic needs such as food and water, and vulnerable households struggle daily to cope with the prolonged nature of the crisis.
  • 1.6 million people in Palestine are moderately to severely food insecure. Food insecurity is higher among female-headed households and refugee households, particularly those within the refugee camps. 40,000 children are currently suffering from micronutrient deficiencies in Gaza, with their families simply unable to afford food of sufficient nutritional value.
  • 1.6 million people in Palestine are food insecure, with 40% of households in Gaza and 13% of households in West bank moderately to severely food insecure.
  • Families are in desperate need of shelter.
  • 40,000 children are sufering from micronutrient deficiencies.
  • 40% of people living in Gaza receive just 4-6 hours of water supply, every 3-5 days.
  • Over 490,000 school children do not have access to a good-quality education in a safe environment.
  • Over 96% of water from Gaza aquifers is unfit for human consumption forcing 90% of the population to rely on purchasing water, which could still be contaminated.
  • 44% of Palestinians are currently unemployed.

The Prophet (PBUH) said, "I and the person who looks after an orphan and provides for him, will be in Paradise like this," putting his index and middle fingers together.
