Since early July, hundreds of innocent civilians – many of them children – have been killed in Gaza. Over 7,500 homes destroyed by bombs, shells and rocket fire. Refugee camps, hospitals, schools, and places of worship have been hit. Many people have no electricity, no running water, no doctors. These people need help, so SCIAF have launched an emergency Conflict Appeal.
Families in Gaza need Scotland's help.
SCIAF have given £30,000 to their sister charity Caritas Jerusalem, who are already helping 96,000 men, women and children caught up in this terrible conflict. They want to give more. Your donation can provide: - Urgent medical care - Food and blankets - Other basic essentials like soap and buckets for collecting water

“The humanitarian situation in Gaza is horrific. As ever, ordinary people are bearing the brunt of the violence. More than 1,700 people have been killed,8,000 wounded, and over 250,000 now homeless. Many civilians have been deeply traumatised by what has happened to them, including an estimated 125,000 children.
