Gaza Emergency Appeal
With COVID-19 numbers quickly rising, coupled with fuel and supply blockages, Gaza is facing yet another crisis, making it almost impossible for both citizens and hospitals to maintain basic operation. Food, fuel and personal protective equipment are desperately needed immediately.
We have liaised with those on the ground in order to ascertain, and prioritize, what is needed most. Olive Kids in partnership with the UHWC, MECA and Al-Amal orphanage are aiming to raise $70,000 to fund the purchase of:
- 600 hygiene packages
- 600 food packages
- 2,000 COVID-19 tests
- Fuel for hospital generators

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.
