Gaza Crisis 2014

See the interactive appeal map
The escalation in the conflict between Israel and Hamas has caused the humanitarian situation in Gaza to reach crisis point. 
Hundreds of thousands of people have fled their homes and are in desperate need of food, water, shelter and medical care. Over 200,000 people urgently need food aid; 1.5 million people have no or very limited access to water or sanitation; and over 65,000 people are now homeless after their homes were severely damaged or destroyed. 
The health system in Gaza is on the verge of collapse, with 24 health facilities damaged and acute shortages of medicines and medical supplies.
Services in Gaza were severely stretched before the conflict, and 80% of the population depended on aid.  There is now massive unmet humanitarian need in Gaza which can only be met with substantial international assistance.
