Gaza crisis

Older people of Gaza are in desperate need of humanitarian support.

Numbering approximately 111,500, older people in Gaza face severe risks amid the ongoing conflict, including hunger, dehydration, illness, injury, and death. Despite their resilience and coping skills, they are being pushed to their limits due to reduced access to essential services and the challenges of displacement.

The lack of adequate emergency shelters exacerbates their difficulties, particularly for those managing chronic health issues or disabilities. Women of all ages are at increased risk of violence and abuse.

Immediate ceasefire, full humanitarian access, and the release of hostages are critical to address these urgent needs and provide necessary medical treatment and assistance.
