Gaza Emergency Appeal

“The believers in their mutual kindness, compassion and sympathy are just like one body. When one of the limbs suffers, the whole body responds to it with wakefulness and fever.”
(Al-Bukhari & Muslim)

it has been a year since the conflict began in Gaza but the humanitarian situation continues to be at a record low as thousands lack basic items as well as adequate food and clean water to keep them healthy.

 Muslim Aid was on the ground in Gaza before the ceasefire, and raised over £4million last Ramadan, which has gone towards emergency aid and long-term development.  One year on, the charity urges people not to forget, and continue to show support this Ramadan for those in need.

Muslim Aid’s work continues to date and will soon extend to provide more food and hygiene kits to families along with psychological support to provide relief to victims of trauma.

Have a look at our Gaza Emergency Frequently Asked Questions to see how we're helping.




Help the people of Gaza now.

  • 18 Aug 2014 update Muslim Aid and PAS serve 3 hospitals with essential supplies

    Muslim Aid, through its partners on the ground, Public Aid Society (PAS), have recently equipped the intensive care unit of three hospitals, with much needed blood units. The blood units will help surgeons perform life saving surgery for the wounded and critically ill. A further  15,000 litres of fuel for generators and ambulances was procured and given to the hospitals, as well as 5 new extra beds. With the recent supplies, it is expected an extra 1,200 emergency patients per month can be seen to and a further 300 wounded patients can receive immediate medical attention.

  • 14 Aug 2014 update Expanding Emergency Care in Gaza's Hospitals

    In Partnership with the Public Aid Society (PAS), Muslim Aid is currently working to sustain and expand the provision of emergency medical care in Gaza. Hospitals in Gaza have been stretched beyond capacity, with medicines in short supply, inadequate equipment and a shortage of fuel that has made electricity available for only 3 hours a day. Consequently, the many of the injured are not receiving adequate care.

    In response, we have invested close to £150,000 to boost the level of care being provided by 3 PAS hospitals serving the wounded and sick from Al Shejaia, Zaytuna, Tofah and Daraj. These are areas that have seen huge numbers of casualties and suffered large scale destruction. The hospitals we are working with see around 10,000 patients each month, many of whom are pregnant women who are unable to deliver in Ministry of Health (MOH) Hospitals, as wards have been filled with casualties. Patients discharged from Al Shifa Hospital are also received at the PAS hospitals, where they are provided with further treatment until recovery.

    Muslim Aid is replenishing vital supplies of life-saving medicines, equipment and fuel, thus allowing the hospitals to continue operating. We are also providing an ICU ambulance that is available 24 hours a day to transport the wounded, making the hospitals better prepared to receive casualties. In addition to this, we are also looking into facilitating the transport of victims abroad for surgery.

    With this work underway, the pressure on Gaza’s MOH hospitals is being eased, and the capacity of the 3 hospitals we are supporting is increased. Their capacity to receive and treat patients is being expanded and we are closely monitoring the changing needs of the medical and emergency services.
