Gaza Humanitarian Crisis
Due to a 15-year blockade, Gaza has become one of the world’s biggest humanitarian crises. The people of Gaza are struggling to survive, with over 2 million people food insecure, only 60% of the water safe to drink, and over 1 million people living in inadequate housing. The people of Gaza are also restricted in their freedom of movement, making it difficult to access basic necessities. The situation is particularly dire for widows and orphans, who are often the most vulnerable members of society. The purpose of this writing about the Gaza Humanitarian Crisis is to highlight the severity of the situation and how and why we should help.
