Stand With Palestine

Current Situation and HCI's Response

Since 7 October, the violence in Gaza has resulted in over 23,000 Palestinians dead, including more than 10,000 children, alongside health workers and journalists. The wounded toll stands at over 59,000, with many still missing under the rubble.

A total siege has deprived 2.3 million people of essential resources like food, water, fuel, and electricity, with almost all internet connectivity severed. The skies are filled with smoke as entire families flee to southern Gaza, leaving behind their homes and belongings.

Amidst this chaos, Human Concern International (HCI) has been actively working on the ground to provide much-needed aid.

Currently, HCI is conducting a needs assessment to determine the full extent of the devastation and identify both short and long-term needs of the innocent victims, subsequently determining the beneficiaries of HCI’s assistance.

The relief effort is structured in three phases:

  1. Emergency Relief: Providing basic necessities and healthcare.
  2. Early Recovery: Aiding in rebuilding permanent housing and supporting education.
  3. Community Development: Restoring health systems, offering psychosocial support, and rebuilding infrastructure and social systems.

Furthermore, HCI has pledged to sponsor a number of orphans for a duration of five years.

To facilitate this noble cause, HCI appeals to the community to contribute towards our programming. This will enable us to provide immediate aid, support children in Gaza over the next five years, providing them with psychological support, medical attention, food, and shelter, with a pivotal focus on ensuring their return to school. We cannot afford to lose an entire generation to war.
