Watch this video clip to learn more about the conditions many Palestinians face on a daily basis, and how Islamic Relief has been helping them get the tools they need to achieve success.
Since airstrikes began on November 14, 2012, more than 40 Palestinians have been killed—including children and at least one pregnant woman, according to news reports. Hundreds have been injured.
The already-volatile environment has now been made more uncertain with renewed violence across the region—from Gaza to Bethlehem to Jerusalem, and areas in between. Many Palestinians who struggle every day in impoverished conditions find themselves yet again without vital resources.
Buildings, schools and homes have been destroyed. Numerous Palestinians have been rendered homeless, and thousands of young children are living in a constant state of fear.
HOW ISLAMIC RELIEF USA IS HELPING
Islamic Relief USA aims to provide emergency supplies to Palestinians who need it most by working with UNRWA, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency. The more you give, the more IRUSA can help—so please, donate today to provide vital aid to our brothers and sisters in need.
Islamic Relief Worldwide has been providing humanitarian relief in Palestine since 1994, and Islamic Relief Palestine opened its office there in 1998 so that long-term development projects could be implemented and overseen by people in the field.
Islamic Relief projects in the region have included food distribution, medical relief and orphan sponsorship. Islamic Relief has also established educational enhancement centers, care programs for traumatized children and a school for the deaf. Learn more about Islamic Relief’s efforts for Palestine.
