Reaching older people affected

With our local partners, we're on the ground responding to older people's most urgent needs in Gaza.

We have distributed hundreds of hygiene kits, which include soap and toilet paper and are ensuring older people are included in food distributions. We're also referring older people to the services they need, such as healthcare.

To help older people affected by the Gaza crisis, you can donate to Age International, our sister organisation.
