As we know Still the siege of Gaza remains in place, and with it the suffering of over 1.6 million people.
Families living in Gaza suffer from high unemployment and even higher rates of poverty.
The majority of Gaza’s residents are refugees.
They live in eight refugee camps .
The UN reports that the number of Gazans living in abject poverty—meaning those who are totally unable to feed their families—
is 300,000, or approximately 20 percent of the population.

From December 27, 2008 to January 18, 2009, Israel carried out a brutal, large-scale attack on Gaza from land, air, and sea that killed more than 1400 Palestinians, including 352 children

Israeli planes and tanks destroyed more than 3,500 residential dwellings and 20,000 people were left homeless. The numbers of people left dead and injured are staggering. Equally staggering are the effects of this sustained military attack That are still occurring daily on the children and residents in Gaza.

It is estimated that over half Gaza’s children—around 360,000—will  if not already develop some form of post-traumatic stress disorder.
back in 2010, the UN Office for Humanitarian Affairs found that
OVER 73% of Gaza children are still suffering from psychological and behavioural disorders, including psychological trauma, nightmares,

Homelessness is just one of the issues facing the 780,000 Gazan children in the aftermath of the conflict,
Perhaps the most disturbing of these is the huge emotional scars borne by children who have survived the conflict;
The Gaza Community Mental Health Programme reports that the majority of children are showing signs of anxiety, acute depression and behavioural problems.

The children are struggling with the idea of there future “Many graduates in Gaza are unemployed, and they can’t see a way forward because they can’t get out.”

Families have been fractured by the conflict, with many parents racked by guilt because they couldn’t protect their children from the violence, and now cannot provide for them in the aftermath.

The director of the Gaza Community Mental Health Programme, says this issue is also badly affecting the children in Gaza. “They have lost their parents twice: first, during the conflict, when they saw their parents terrified and unable to protect them from the violence. Now, under the blockade, they see their parents are still unable to provide for their basic needs, such as shelter or food,” he said.
“It’s a crisis which is threatening families and communities across the Gaza Strip.”

For some, this crisis has had a devastating impact on family relationships,

Many children are suffering the physical effects of the conflict.
Many of the children in Gaza’s hospital do not have the option of leaving the strip, and the prognosis for children in the oncology ward is bleak.
Chemotherapy is not available in Gaza, and many of the children on the ward have not been granted the papers they need to seek the treatment readily available to Palestinians just across the Israeli and Egyptian borders.

“The mortality rate for cancer in Gaza is by far much higher than elsewhere,” “You have to get a permit if you want to cross into Gaza and most of them are not granted.

Gaza kids are dying as a result of the decisions being made by the people in charge,

Even the parents who have papers allowing their children to leave don’t fare much better.

This is a situation that has to stop but for now we can help by showing the support that we care and supporting convoys that are able to get into Gaza to provide the Support and Aid that is desperately needed
