Overview

Gaza, Palestine, has been a focal point of humanitarian strife for years. Home to over two million people within its 362 square kilometers, its dense population grapples daily with challenges intensified by geographic isolation, scarce resources, and an unstable economy.

Challenges

Two million Palestinians are facing violence, displacement, and restricted access to basic necessities and rights. Their access to essential services, freedom of movement, and many human rights are denied or limited, leading to inadequate medical care and hindered opportunities for work and education.

Food Insecurity
Alarmingly, over 70% of Gaza's households face food insecurity, a situation exacerbated by the region's ongoing conflicts.

Water Crisis
A staggering 90% of Gaza's water is unsuitable for consumption, posing severe health risks to its inhabitants.
