Now over four months in, the humanitarian crisis in Gaza has reached catastrophic levels, with one in four households facing famine levels of food insecurity and severely limited access to safe water.

“Our mornings begin with a silent check – are the kids, is everyone, alright?” said Mohammad, one of 74 staff members from Global Communities who is still on the ground in Gaza and the West Bank. “Our needs have undergone a profound transformation. The priorities of our past seem distant now; our focus is singular – survival.”

Of the more than 1.7 million people who have been internally displaced by the war between Israel and Hamas, many are staying at overcrowded shelters or on the streets. The United Nations warns that hunger and starvation, dehydration and illness will continue to increase as significant damage has been inflicted upon critical infrastructure and essential health and sanitation services.
