According to the Gaza health ministry on May 19, 2021, 227 people in Gaza have been killed, including 64 children. 1,620 people have been wounded to date.
Mercy-USA for Aid and Development is working with our long-time partner, The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) to provide emergency food and essential shelter necessities such as blankets, mattresses, mats, kitchen sets and nylon/tarpaulin sheeting. We are also distributing vitally important hygiene supplies like soap, towels, shampoo, baby wipes and diapers to Palestinians in Gaza who are suffering in this latest escalation of violence on children and their families.
Feeding and providing the needed supplies to stay healthy is our first priority for these families!
