Focus on our emergency response activities

Humanitarian needs in Gaza are immense.
Despite particularly dangerous conditions, our teams on the ground continue to provide emergency aid to the civilian population.
Since our relocation to the south of the city, our emergency response has already been underway with cash support for 300 families, and for several days now, in collaboration with one of our Palestinian partner associations (UFA), with the distribution of basic necessities and food parcels purchased locally, and able to be consumed directly without processing, for 375 households in the city’s central governorate (with priority given to those staying with host families); each parcel being intended to cover the needs of a family of 5 for at least a week.
Our team, deployed in Egypt for more than a dozen days, has been hard at work purchasing inputs and receiving 58 Association Tulipe medical trunks (via a special flight from France), with a view to transporting them to Gaza for hospitals in need.
