Gaza Emergency Appeal


Children in Gaza urgently need your help now

Currently, no child in Gaza is safe as violence continues to escalate with no foreseeable end. Children in the region are facing a catastrophic food crisis, lack of shelter, limited access to medical assistance, and living in a state of terror.

“The constant sounds of bombing every moment and thinking how we will get food… Words cannot describe what we are living.” - Lina,* 16, daughter of a Save the Children staff member in Gaza.

Children in Gaza are cut off from the basics they need to survive, and over 1.7 million people have been displaced. There is no clean water, leaving children at risk of dying from severe dehydration. Many people are being forced to turn to contaminated water sources, leaving them vulnerable to illness or an outbreak of waterborne diseases. Children’s lives and futures are at risk – we urgently need your support to protect them, please donate today.


We are already responding through partners, distributing water and hygiene products, and preparing food parcels for families. Our teams are doing everything they can and are ready to scale-up life-saving support to children:

  • Delivering further Mental Health and Psychosocial Support services for children and caregivers.
  • Deploying our Emergency Health Unit and procuring essential medical equipment.
  • Distributing warm clothes and blankets, and more cash and vouchers so families can buy food, medicines and any other essentials.
  • Ensuring children continue to have access to education, by setting up temporary learning spaces and repairing damaged schools.

We urgently need your support to provide the essentials children and families need to survive and help them recover. 


All children have the right to a life free from violence and to live in peace. While Save the Children is not currently working in Israel, we are deeply concerned for all children in the region and all hostages who should be released immediately.
