Assalamualaikum wa rahmatullah
Three days of intense aerial bombardment have left more than 300 people dead and hundreds more injured.
The bombings have taken the lives of civilians including women and children, and have affected hospitals and medical warehouses. The 19 month blockade of Gaza has already severely restricted the capacity of local hospitals to cope with the injured, with many reported to have already run out of critical supplies.
The blockade of Gaza has also forced more than half of the 1.5 million population to be dependant on humanitarian assistance. International aid agencies have been struggling to provide food, medicine and clean water whilst the shortage of fuel has made it extremely difficult to run essential services in Gaza including power to hospitals and sewerage treatment plants. This new and severe onslaught has brought yet more misery to an already suffering people.
Muslim Aid has been delivering humanitarian and developmental assistance in Palestine through its partners for over two decades. The £2 million raised through this appeal for the people of Gaza will be used by local partners to provide medicine and food for those most affected.
We urgently need your help to provide life-saving assistance to those that need it most.
