Gaza Emergency Appeal

Help provide vital humanitarian assistance and protection to civilians in Gaza

Gaza emergency, please give urgently.

The scenes unfolding in Gaza are nothing short of harrowing.

The human cost of this tragedy is enormous, with thousands of lives lost and over 1.7 million people forcibly displaced*.

Nearly all of Gaza’s population lacks access to shelter, food, medical service, clean water, education, and incomes. The needs continue to grow at an alarming rate as disease spreads and many are at risk of starvation.

Please give today to help our local partner provide lifesaving medical care and to help respond to this unprecedented humanitarian crisis.

Since October 2023, there have been relentless attacks on Gaza, including homes, hospitals, clinics, and churches. The numbers of people killed and injured continue to rise each day. 

We continue to stand with our long-term partners, the Near East Council of Churches and Department of Service to Palestinian Refugees, who, despite their own individual losses are working tirelessly to provide vital humanitarian assistance and protection to the civilians of Gaza. 

“The needs are beyond belief, the resources are limited and hard to find, the teams on the ground are exhausted working in extremely unsafe and hard conditions but determined to serving this noble mission” – Act for Peace’s local partner, the Department of Services to Palestinian Refugees (DSPR). 

DSPR’s response includes providing hygiene kits and cash assistance, allowing families who have lost everything to buy urgently needed food, water, and winter clothing. They are also working at a local clinic to provide essential healthcare services and medicine, as well as provide crucial mental health support to children. 

Please give urgently today and help respond to this humanitarian crisis.

“The world can’t relax while people are dying every minute. Every minute. Every 10 minutes there is a child killed in Gaza.”
“I want to express my gratitude to you and all our supporters. Your care, concern, and generosity are not just bringing back hope but are making a real difference in the lives of those affected by this crisis. Your solidarity reflects shared values of justice, compassion, and the fundamental right to live with dignity.”
Nader, Executive Secretary, DSPR
