What is happening in Gaza?

Gaza is currently experiencing a humanitarian crisis. The situation is deeply concerning, with over 22,000 Palestinian deaths of which over 10,000 are children. We need your generous donations to help us provide life-saving medical care and essential food items.

As the conflict intensifies and threatens the lives of many in the Gaza Strip, we anticipate multiple civilian casualties, particularly women and children. The crisis is placing an enormous burden on local hospitals and emergency medical response facilities. As electricity supplies are cut off, a steady supply of fuel is required to keep hospitals and equipment operational. Our brothers and sisters in Gaza need our unwavering support, prayers (dua), and emergency assistance.

Frequently Asked Questions

Penny Appeal Canada is taking an integrated approach by working directly with trusted local organizations,  who are registered UN partners. Supplies and services will be secured through these organizations and local suppliers. We work with partner organizations who have undergone a rigorous screening process to ensure they comply with the requirements set out by the Canadian Government, as well as with Penny Appeal Canada programmatic and reporting requirements.

Yes. PAC also has representatives on the ground conducting needs assessments on an urgent basis, especially in the early days of the crisis, to determine who has been adversely affected and what kind of urgent or long term support they will require. We rely on the knowledge, capacity, and resources of local NGOs who conduct real time assessments of the situation on the ground as it develops.

Based on the updates we have received in the past 24 hours, the following needs are most urgent:

  • Fuel to keep hospitals and medical equipment operational
  • Medical supplies and medication
  • Daily essentials for displaced families: food, clean water, hygiene kits
  • Emergency kits for displaced families: blankets, first aid kits, solar powered lights.

Since the organizations we work with are based in Gaza and registered with the UN and other international agencies, they have access to the warehouses that stock relief items. Additionally, the staff and community members are invested in ensuring   the relief items reach those in most need. 

Distributions of the necessities take place in temporary shelters, hospitals and where most needed across the city. We also request proof of the distribution through photos and videos wherever possible.
