Urgent Action Needed to Secure a Permanent Ceasefire in Gaza

Gaza has now endured over 100 days of intense Israeli bombardment, subjected to destruction, civilian terror and recurrent breaches of international humanitarian law. Palestinian authorities report over 24,000 deaths, including 10,440 children, and more than 60,000 injuries—horrific figures that are rising daily. 

UN experts are warning against ethnic cleansing and even imminent genocide in Gaza. 

Email your local representative and let them know that Canada must exhaust every means in its power to call for an immediate permanent ceasefire and an end to the bombings in Gaza. 

Send Urgent Relief to Gaza Charity

The people of Gaza are fleeing for their lives as they experience 100+ days of indiscriminate attacks, ongoing blockade, starvation diet, and mass killing of civilians in the most densely-populated place on earth

These attacks have  injured over 60,000 people and killed 24,000 Palestinians, further displacing 1.9 million people. 

After suffering decades of violence and human rights violations, Palestinian people  continue to feel unsafe in their own country. Lack of fuel, clean water and limited food supplies has forced the healthcare system into a state of total collapse, and caused significant levels of dehydration and starvation among children as essential supplies slowly run out across the Gaza Strip. 

Islamic Relief is committed to responding and working with local partners to provide emergency medical assistance to nearby hospitals and urgent food support to displaced families and clean water to entire communities.  

Support our Gaza emergency appeal and continue saving lives.

As a member of the Humanitarian Coalition, all donations made through Islamic Relief Canada to the Palestine Emergency Appeal from October 7 - November 12 will be matched up to $10 million. Our joint fundraising appeal brought together 12 of Canada's leading international aid agencies in unity for the same cause, amplifying our impact on the ground.

How is Islamic Relief delivering aid across Gaza?

Islamic Relief has been on the ground, operating in Palestine since 1997. We have offices with staff and volunteers who have been distributing all emergency food and medical supplies they had previously stockpiled or could additionally procure, every day since the escalations began. 

We are working alongside the Ministry of Health, UN humanitarian organizations, and local partners: Beit Lahia Development Association, Gaza Culture and Development Group, Unlimited Friends Association for Social Development, and Bayader for Environment and Development Association. 

From October 7 to January 15, 2024, our team has so far distributed: 

            ⛑️ 2.2 million medical supply items 
            📦 14,170 food packs 
            💵 4,245 food vouchers 
            🥬 Fresh produce to 105,010 households
            🍴 1,008,458 ready-to-eat meals + ready-to-eat items to 115,433 families
             🛏️ 14,076 blankets and mattresses
            💧16,404 people received clean water 
            🧼 42,882 hygiene kits + items to 18 shelters
            🎈51,751 children received psychosocial support

However, all humanitarian agencies in Gaza are running low on essential supplies. We need your support to be able to continue sustaining distributions on a mass scale the moment new aid is allowed in. 

The situation in Palestine

The people of Palestine are no stranger to devastation. Ongoing violence and restrictions have severely impacted access to food, water, and healthcare in Palestine, leaving over 1.9 million people in need of humanitarian aid in Gaza.

For people across Palestine, life is incredibly challenging:

  • 80% of the population are dependent on humanitarian assistance to survive (European Union, 2023)
  • 65% of Palestinians in Gaza live below the poverty line (UN, 2022)
  • 9 out of 10 children in Gaza suffer from some form of conflict-related trauma (Euro-Med Human Rights Monitor, 2021)
  • One third of the Palestinian population suffer from food insecurity, of which 90% live in Gaza (WFP, 2022)
