Email David Cameron to call for peace and urge the UK to play its part in upholding international law.
We have all been shocked and saddened by the devastating conflict in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territory. After 4 weeks of intense conflict, almost 10,000 Palestinians and 1,400 Israeli's have been killed, thousands more injured, and over 1.4 million Palestinians in Gaza are displaced. Food, water and fuel are in increasingly short supply. Families need urgent help.
In Gaza, we are working closely with our local partners to reach those who have been affected by the conflict. We have committed £100,000 to our local partner, Catholic Relief Services (CRS) and 10,000 families have been supported with vouchers. Families are using these to purchase essentials like food, water, mattresses and bedding. We have also committed £50,000 to our partner in Khan Younis who are supporting 300 people. They are providing shelter support, food and cash and solar lanterns- where access to power is limited. We have released £10,000 to our local partner working in southern Israel with local emergency support groups to give psychological support, build emotional resilience and organize for basic humanitarian assistance.
Sadly staff and volunteers in our partner organisations have already lost their lives and tragically news has reached us that more local staff in Gaza have been killed. Your support and your prayers of solidarity for those putting their lives at risk to help during this crisis are needed now more than ever.
