EMERGENCY APPEAL – Christian Aid – Gaza Crisis Appeal

EMERGENCY APPEAL – Christian Aid – Gaza Crisis Appeal: 1.8 million people in Gaza are directly affected by the violence between Israel and Hamas.  Help us reach those in desperate need by donating via the envelopes on the pews or available at the back of church. Following a 72-hour ceasefire, Christian Aid’s partners on the ground are accessing areas previously cut off from any kind of humanitarian assistance. They aim to reach 20,000 people with safe water, and provide essential healthcare and treatment. As of 5 August, at least 1,312 Palestinian civilians, including 408 children, have been killed in the Gaza Strip during Israel’s month-long offensive. An estimated 273,000 people have been forced from their homes and are sheltering in UN-run compounds.  www.christianaid.org.uk
