On July 8th 2014 Israel launched a 7-week military assault on the Gaza Strip. AJ+ followed three Palestinians living through the war: a doctor at Al-Shifa Hospital, a student at the Islamic University of Gaza and the first female spokesperson for the Hamas government. We follow these three twenty-somethings as they cope with the chaos and uncertainty caused by the bombardment. And we watch as they each try to help Gaza in very different ways.

As you are probably aware there is a war crime happening in Palestine, as we speak there are missiles being launched into Palestine and thousands of people have lost their home, schools, hospitals and local amenities. The death toll in Palestine has reached over a thousand and their are children without parents, childless mothers and families torn apart. The money I raise is just a small amount that with your help can go towards rebuilding what’s left of the lives of these innocent people. As we go to sleep tonight in out warm comfortable beds the are those that are unable to Close their eyes through fear of being attacked. Please donate as much or as little as you can afford. 100% of proceeds raised go directly to Human Appeal through just giving account so that they are able to provide aid during this terrible time.
GAZA CAMPAIGN – WHAT CAN YOU DO?
Israel’s latest atrocity in Gaza has led to thousands of you asking what you can do to help. FOA has put together a guide on a number of different campaigns which we hope you will each sign up to, so that collectively, we can help end the suffering of the Palestinian people.
If you cannot take all the recommended actions, commit yourself to at least one and be consistent with it. Palestinians need us in times of crisis, and these times of crisis are not just when Israel unleashes its mass death and destruction.
Ministry of Health in Gaza Strip just requested everyone with any basic medical or health knowledge to immediately go to any hospital.
