WE NEED YOUR HELP TODAY!
Thousands have been killed, over one million people have fled their homes, and hundreds of thousands in the Gaza Strip have little-to-no access to basic commodities including food, water, electricity and fuel. Further escalation of the conflict carries the risk of exacerbating an already catastrophic humanitarian situation. Humanitarian access is essential to ensure that aid reaches those most vulnerable, including over one million children living in Gaza.
IOM staff is on the ground, working tirelessly to help provide shelter, emergency supplies, health services, psychosocial support, and cash assistance. We are also helping to evacuate people in need and protect the most vulnerable.
In response to the escalation of conflict in Gaza and Israel, IOM is also supporting partners on the ground with much needed humanitarian aid. IOM provided Egyptian Red Crescent with medical supplies to help those severely affected by the ongoing conflict. In response to the dire humanitarian conditions in Gaza, IOM Egypt delivered a new batch of humanitarian aid to Egyptian Red Crescent in Arish, consisting of medical supplies, medicines, and hygiene and dignity kits, awaiting opening of safe humanitarian corridors to cross. But with no end to the violence in sight, we need to urgently scale up our support.
IOM stands ready to further support humanitarian efforts, including evacuation of third-country nationals, further provision of shelter, non-food items, health services and psychosocial support, cash assistance, protection of vulnerable groups, and movement support. The situation is fluid, and the needs overview will continue to be revised.
Your support is critical in our mission to deliver emergency aid to displaced families in neighboring countries to the Gaza Strip.
