Palestinians Are Shivering: Winter Aid for Gaza and Jerusalem
or donate via
The living conditions in the Gaza strip have been deteriorating due to the consecutive shocks that the area has been experiencing since the beginning of the Israeli blockade in 2007, including the latest hostilities in May 2021. The population of the Gaza strip is approximately 2.1 million people. It’s one of the most densely populated areas in the world with almost 5800 individuals per square kilometre. The humanitarian needs overview for 2021 estimates that about 1.6 million individuals in Gaza require humanitarian aid with over 1 million of which being in severe need. Add to this, the Israeli occupation has viciously forced tens of families in occupied Jerusalem to leave their homes.
The UW team will be providing vital support to vulnerable Palestinian families across the blessed city of Al-Quds in what is predicted to be the most brutal winter in a decade. Winter storms will spread across the Holy City, with heavy falls of snow, and strong winds, making daily life even harder than normal.
The Gazze Destek Association (GDD) team will be providing food aid and winter essentials to Palestinian families across Gaza. The GDD team will also focus on sustainable projects such as renovation of worn-out roofs, renovation of dilapidated houses, rehabilitation of fishers’ equipment, safe lighting, solar cells project for a patient, and productive women project.
This campaign aims to provide different types of humanitarian aid that include:
- Food Aid (Essential Items)
- Food Packs (Ready to Eat)
- Bread Packs
- Winter Kit: This includes winter clothes, blankets, and mattresses
- Fuel: Diesel, charcoal, and electronic heaters
- Renovation of dilapidated houses
- Rehabilitation of fishers’ equipment
- Solar cell Project
Donations to this campaign will distribute critical aid to the most vulnerable families especially focusing on needy children struggling to stay warm in Jerusalem and Gaza.
The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: “Whoever relieves a Muslim of a burden from the burdens of the world, Allah will relieve him of a burden from the burdens on the Day of Judgement. [Timirdhi]
