Sadly, coronavirus has now reached Gaza.
Its 2 million residents are now at risk of catastrophic impact if the virus spreads in Gaza due to weak healthcare infrastructure.
Gaza’s health care system is equipped with just 3,000 hospital beds, 70 intensive care unit beds, and 60 ventilators. It faces a shortage of skilled staff, oxygen devices, testing kits, and protective equipment.
Our partners on the ground have identified that the most urgent needs are:

Olive Kids is an Australian registered foundation that seeks to facilitate financial support, education & medical assistance to Palestinian children. Founded in 2007, Olive Kids is run by passionate volunteers from a range of professions.
As a consequence of the occupation, Palestinian children are robbed of their childhood. They suffer emotionally, physically and psychologically - deeply impacting their progress and development.
Under occupation in Palestine or in the refugee camps, the living conditions deny these young kids the very basic rights of security, health care, access to education, freedom of movement and basic infrastructure. Generations of young children are forced to mature at a young age, traumatised by their daily experiences. In effect, these kids live no childhood at all.
