Humanitarian aid for Gaza

This programme is a collaboration between 6 organisations funded by the Dutch Relief Alliance to address the most pressing needs in Gaza, since the outbreak of the war in November 2023. Right now, we are working with our Terre des Hommes Italy and the national NGO called Palestinian Medical Relief Society (PMRS) - to address vulnerabilities through the provision of specialised primary healthcare, along with tailored devices and non-food items kits of the most vulnerable groups.

Since the escalation of violence, over 70% of the 2,3 miljon Gaza inhabitants have been displaced. More than 50% of hospitals are no longer functioning, and others were forced to prioritise lifesaving emergency care due to lack of fuel and supplies.

Displaced persons in shelters urgently need basic healthcare, and face heightened exposure to protection risks, including psychosocial stress and trauma. Other displaced families are staying with relatives, friends or in non-formal shelters, and insecurity and danger hinder their ability to access essential services. The most vulnerable groups are pregnant & lactating women, people with chronic diseases and people with disabilities, who are in need of specialised and constant health care. 

Particular for children, forced displacement has made them vulnerable to family separation. They continue to face direct threats from military operations, especially in terms of  injuries and trauma. There is increased risk of neglect, exploitation, and violence, including gender-based violence. Disruption to children's education is a well-documented consequence of conflict zones like Gaza, further exacerbating children's vulnerability​​.

Since October, there has been no access to education and a safe place for more than 625,000 students in Gaza.

We would continue with the same approach as we have now. Implementing through Tdh Italy and PMRS. We are currently supporting 3 outreach teams from PMRS who operate inside formal and non-formal shelters, tented camps, and homes, aiming to address the most critical health needs exacerbated by ongoing conflict and displacement in Gaza.

With more funding, we would like to not only increase the healthcare services, but also give special attention to the particular needs of children. That would include:

A holistic approach to healthcare provision
Play and Learning kit for children
Donate for Gaza
Mother and Child Care Kit
Comprehensive Family Support Kit


Primary health care services and follow up services
Workshops and training sessions for mental well-being
