New Aid Corridors Due to Open in Gaza  

New supply corridors are due to be temporarily opened along the Erez land crossing and Ashdod Port, allowing urgently-needed life-saving aid into famine-threatened Gaza. 

According to recent reports, at least 55% of the population in Northern Gaza is facing catastrophic levels of hunger and the situation is getting worse with every passing minute. 

Right now the threat of dying from hunger is very real. To date, at least 23 children have already died due to dehydration and malnutrition. Immediate and critical action is needed to prevent an unprecedented humanitarian catastrophe in Gaza. Children’s lives are hanging in the balance. 

This is a man-made hunger crisis which can be stopped, but children desperately need your life-saving help. Donate today and help send food, water and medicine to children in Gaza.  

UNICEF stands ready to deliver tonnes of humanitarian supplies into Gaza, but we need your help to reach every child in need. Please donate now.  

Shaima, aged 8, stands crushed up against a steel bar waiting to receive a meal. Every day, she waits for 2 hours in the hope of bringing food back to her family. “I’ve been waiting here for two hours, but I haven’t gotten any food. My mother and my little sister are waiting for me. They haven’t eaten since yesterday.”

Donate now and help send life-saving food to children in Gaza.

Together, we can fend off famine, but we need your urgent support to do so.

Save a Child Like Nour

The entire population of Gaza is facing dire hunger with at least 335,000 children – that’s every single child under the age of five – at immediate risk of severe acute malnutrition. 10,000 of them are already so desperately sick they could die unless they get urgent help.  

11-year-old Nour is so weak and ill from malnutrition that she requires oxygen to help her breath. Her tiny, frail body is battling for survival. No child should have to suffer like this.  

Life-saving aid is mere kilometers away and with your help, UNICEF supplies will cross the border to reach children in need. Please donate today and help send more trucks, filled with emergency food and clean water, into Gaza.  

Your help can’t come quick enough.
