We hope and pray for a speedy peaceful situation to be found. Meanwhile, ordinary people, including children and the elderly, are particularly vulnerable. Citizens in Gaza are already impoverished and the lack of electricity, water and medication can only make things much worse.
When this dreadful conflict is over we will continue to build playgrounds which will be needed more than ever to support children who will have seen and experienced trauma beyond our imaginings. But for now we ask that you support established charities who can help Palestinians with food, water and medicine. These include, but are not limited to:
Palestine Children's Relief Fund PCRF
Middle Eastern Children's Alliance Middle East Children's Alliance – Meca for Peace
Amos Trust Palestine Justice (amostrust.org)
United Palestinian Appeal United Palestinian Appeal – Transforming lives, empowering communities since 1978 (upaconnect.org) l
British Red Cross https://donate.redcross.org.uk/appeal/emergencies-fund
Together, we can but try to make a difference.
