Hostilities in Gaza and Israel are ongoing, and violence in the West Bank has surged. Millions of Palestinians struggle to live with dignity under Israeli occupation, facing coercive practices and Palestinian political divisions.

Among the challenges, shortages of fuel, food, medicine, and medical supplies at hospitals in northern Gaza and lack of access to the area.

Following the strike on MSF’s guest house on 20 February, intensified efforts to ensure the safety of humanitarian guest houses throughout Gaza are urgently needed. The increase of bloody and watery diarrhea can be directly attributed to the lack of safe drinking water, posing a significant public health challenge.

According to the Ministry of Health in Gaza as of 23 February 2024, at least 29,514 Palestinians have been killed in the Gaza Strip since 7 October. About 70 per cent of those killed are reported to be women and children. Another 69,616 Palestinians have been reportedly injured.

How does Alliance2015 help?

In light of the current crisis, Acted and CESVI mobilised to respond to the immediate needs of displaced populations in the Gaza Strip, particularly through the distribution of stocks of essential goods. 

CESVI has been providing urgent nutritional support over an eight-week cycle through the distribution of 18 tonnes of Plumpy’Nut, a special ready-to-use protein food used for the nutritional rehabilitation of children in emergency settings.

Given the increasing needs of Palestinian communities in the West Bank, Acted is also stepping up its response to provide assistance, particularly to displaced populations.
