As the most densely populated area on Earth, the people of Gaza remain in dire conditions due to years of war and political restrictions. Over 2 million people live in abject poverty in an area of less than 25 miles long and 7 miles wide.
Food stocks are extremely low or all but depleted. Water supply is poisonous, contaminated due to ongoing attacks which have damaged local infrastructure. Thousands of people have lost their lives and many more are sick and injured. The people of Gaza are trapped and desperate for help.
In more than 8 years of war, the severity of the situation for the Syrian people has not eased. Almost 12 million people remain in desperate need of safety, shelter, food and water as tensions continue.
Each day families and their homes are destroyed in an instant due to barrel bombs and air strikes. Hospitals, schools and entire towns have been obliterated. Regional infrastructures including roads, electricity and water supply have been extensively damaged. Living amongst death, destruction and under constant threat of danger has become normal for the millions of children born into one of the worst humanitarian disasters of our times.
Yemen is starving. Acute food insecurity compounded by drought and rapidly rising food prices, widespread poverty and political tensions have placed 17 million people in urgent need of humanitarian aid. Teetering on the brink of famine, children are literally wasting away - going days or even weeks without adequate food.
Recent hostilities have displaced almost 4000 more families, placing them at further risk of malnutrition, illness and death. Many have been left to fend for themselves out in the open without shelter, sanitation, medical care, food or clean water. Millions of people including the elderly, sick and young children are in grave danger and desperately need help.
Since the tensions began, over 240,000 people have been displaced – chased from their homes and running for their lives. Almost 1 million people are in urgent need of assistance having experienced horrific violence and chaos. Now abandoned, they face a new struggle to survive – living in squalid, unsafe conditions and without basic human rights. Over half of those in need are children.
Gathered on the borders of Myanmar and Bangladesh, the Rohingya people are living a nightmare. For those who have survived the horrors of burning, assault and massacre, life will never be the same again. Injuries and illness are widespread. Malnutrition is on the rise. Crime rates, including sexual assault and trafficking, are rising as people who have lost everything are forced to do anything they can to survive.
