Rising from Crisis: Aid for Palestine

The people of Palestine are fleeing for their lives as they experience continuing airstrikes in Gaza, and dangerous escalations of violence. These attacks have injured over 9,700 people and killed 2,750 Palestinians, of which 614 are children and 370 women, further displacing 263,934 people.

After suffering decades of violence and human rights violations, Palestinians continue to feel unsafe in their own country. The economy has been damaged by political instability and constant violence. The total siege on Gaza has severed all power and water supplies, as well as blocked new food and fuel from entering the region. This is forcing health facilities to operate partially due to severe shortages of essential medical supplies and fuel, and water to run out at UN shelters across Gaza.

Islamic Relief is committed to responding and working with local partners to provide emergency medical assistance to nearby hospitals and urgent food support to displaced families. While our distributions will temporarily pause due to the current dire situation and huge safety concerns, your donations will reach their destination. We remain committed to continuing our vital work as soon as it is safe to do so.

Help us provide urgent relief and continue saving lives today. 

Islamic Relief Canada's Palestine Emergency Appeal

Why Palestine needs our support

The people of Palestine are no stranger to devastation. Ongoing violence and restrictions have severely impacted access to food, water, and healthcare in Palestine, especially the Gaza strip.

With over 1.3 million people in need of humanitarian aid in Gaza, Islamic Relief Canada is on the ground providing emergency relief as well as helping families recover from the ongoing violence. Every dollar you give means we can reach more children, women and the elderly who continue to face hunger, poverty, trauma and loss.

Your support for Palestine will reach them through immediate food supplies, shelter, hygiene kits and cash assistance, as well as focusing on recovery through sustainable agriculture, livelihood support and dignified income opportunities.

The Gaza Strip is one of the most densely populated places on Earth. It has a population of approximately 2.1 million people and since 2007 it has been under a land, sea and air blockade imposed by Israel.

Years of conflict and the blockade have left 80% of the population dependent on humanitarian assistance to survive. Access to clean water is not possible for 95% of the population, impacting essential services like health, water and sanitation. Almost half of Gaza’s people do not have enough food, around 60% of children are anaemic, and many children suffer from stunted growth due to malnutrition.


How your donations are making a difference to the people of Palestine

Islamic Relief has been working in Palestine since 1994. Our work in Gaza is focused on getting food to those who need it most, treating urgent health needs, facilitating access to water, sponsoring orphans and distributing aid during emergencies.

Through your Palestine donations, our team supports the developmental needs of the communities in Gaza through improving access to education, healthcare, psychosocial services, and livelihoods. The ongoing crisis has had a traumatic effect on generations of children. Through our psychosocial services, we are able to provide safe spaces where they can build self esteem and work on social, communication and conflict resolution skills.

Your support for Gaza is helping our teams to deliver vital medical supplies and vaccines to patients and staff. We also provide key items such as medicine, disposables, medical kits and food for all.


How you can help Palestine

Even though tensions are extremely high, we are ready to help Palestine now. We will provide lifesaving care in areas where the health system is struggling to cope.

In Gaza the Islamic Relief team works extensively, providing vital medical supplies, sponsoring orphans, distributing Ramadan food packs, and personal protective equipment to ensure the safety of the healthcare workers.

The health system is under a lot of pressure due to staff shortages and lack of medical supplies. Show your support for the people in need by donating to our Palestine Emergency Relief.

Around half of the people living in Palestine are in need of vital aid and water. Islamic Relief is on the ground working to support the people in need across the region. Help save lives now.
