The situation in Palestine needs no introduction. In recent escalation of the ongoing violence, over 200 Palestinians including dozens of children have been killed and hundreds have been wounded. Thousands of lives have been affected.
MAA immediately conducted a needs assessment and launched an Emergency Appeal to assist with essential humanitarian aid in Jerusalem as well as Gaza. As the existing medical infrastructure in Palestine is fragile, our focus is to provide general medical aid and supplies, clothes, dignity kits for our sisters, and food packs.
Despite the ceasefire, at least 1.9 million Palestinians still experience, or are at risk of, conflict and violence, displacement and denial of access to livelihoods, among other threats. The most vulnerable Palestinians are currently denied or restricted in their access to essential services such as water and health care, denied freedom of movement and many human rights. As a result, they lack access to adequate medical care, and the ability to work and pursue education.
MAA has provided humanitarian aid to Palestine for over 20 years, and we will continue our efforts in providing emergency relief and the long-term rebuilding and rehabilitation of those who have been suffering for such a long time.
We urge you to donate generously to support the Emergency Appeal and help our brothers and sisters in Palestine.
