IBC CONTINUES ITS RELIEF TO GAZA


The intense conflicts that have been going on in Gaza for seven months have made the humanitarian conditions of the Palestinian people more and more difficult with each passing day.

While the ongoing conflicts cause innocent civilians under fire to lose their lives, to be displaced, to their homes being destroyed or devastated to the point of being uninhabitable; It also caused major damage to the infrastructure. This dire situation also caused critical services to stop.

The bombardment, which has been continuing uninterruptedly for 7 months since October, brought along power outages and fuel problems, disrupting the health sector and causing many hospitals to be unable to provide service. While 34,012 people lost their lives during this period, which is almost halfway through the year; 76,833 people were injured. 1.7 million people were displaced.

Increasingly harsh living conditions…

The living conditions of the Palestinian people continued to become more severe day by day. Thousands of people need needs under many important reliefs such as shelter, food, clean water and medicine in order to continue their lives. As always, women and children suffer the most in disasters. In the report presented by the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), approximately 31% of children under the age of 2 face the problem of malnutrition; It is currently stated that 50,000 or more children are malnourished. The same report also states that 1.1 million people face catastrophic food insecurity.

Unfortunately, the extent of the problems experienced is not limited to a single heading. Large gaps emerge day by day in the areas of health, shelter, access to clean water and education. Considering all these conditions, International Blue Crescent Foundation (IBC) continues to lend a helping hand to meet the needs of the Palestinian people. The Foundation, acting in cooperation with IDRF Canada and other donors, mobilized all its resources and managed to send three relief cargoes to those in need in Gaza. The three relief  consignments sent before the Eid al-Fitr included 4,350 food parcels, 1,350 hygiene kits and 1,350 woman dignity kits. This essential relief, sent to Gaza through United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), was aimed to be distributed to more than 1.4 million people in the southern governorates of Rafah and Khan Younis.
