In the last war on Gaza over 2100 Gazans lost their lives and over 250,000 lost their homes.
The war on Gaza has devastated thousands of lives, and caused irreparable damage to homes, schools and hospitals. Many go without electricity for lengthy periods of time leaving an entire city plunged into darkness.
Hospitals are among the worst affected by this as life saving equipment becomes useless, operating rooms are lit by candle light and rely on power generators which are often left inoperative as they are so heavily used.
Clean Drinking Water Appeal
95% of Gaza’s water is deemed unfit for human consumption people are forced to drink bottled water which many Gazans simply cannot afford. Many risk infection and disease and use water which is heavily loaded with salts and other pollutants and they simply cannot afford water tanks which are refilled weekly at a cost. They cannot afford to give their children a glass of clean water in the smouldering sun in summer; they cannot afford to use clean water to cook a meal for their families. They use contaminated water to bathe, wash their hands and their clothes. We can make a difference.
Donate today to provide families, community water tanks, schools and mosques with clean drinking water
We provide water storage tanks for family homes and refill them on a weekly basis to ensure that the family have access to clean drinking water every day.
We also install large water containers in poor neighbourhoods which are refilled daily. Anyone can use this water, an old man who finds himself thirsty, children thirsty from playing in the street, a family who live nearby and need some water for their evening meal.
Water tanks and dispensers are placed in school and mosques and are refilled daily so pupils and mosque goers have access to a clean drink of water.
Donate the essence of life to Gaza today.
GRF provide funding for operations and procedures for sick and injured Palestinians in their time of need. Many are unable to afford basic medical attention, so when they are extremely sick, they rely solely on generous donations to get better.
This project allows us to assist in the cost of medicine for patients who require it, long or short term, but cannot afford the cost. We help them to maintain their health with desperately needed medication so they can be around to look after their families.
Most orphaned children are living in poverty. With one or both parents gone, they are often left with little or no money for their everyday needs. As such, their eyesight is often overlooked, and they go to school struggling to see the board in their classroom. Through this project, we have eye specialist teams arrange eye tests and glasses if needed for orphaned children, forever improving their eyesight and quality of life.
We provide school children with a healthy, nourishing lunch at school. For many of them, this is the only hot meal they will have in a day. We make sure it’s a healthy one, giving them sustenance.
We provide school children with backpacks filled with school essentials like exercise books, stationary and more. Many are unable to afford this, and struggle with their studies as a result.
Most expectant mothers are unequipped for their baby’s arrival. What they view as luxury items are often foregone as they have very little money. We provide them with nappies, baby blankets and towels, clothes, formula milk, baby clothes and more so they can welcome their baby into a happy environment.
There are thousands of orphans is Gaza, and this number only increases with each war. Orphaned children are often taken in by family members when their parents pass away, but when that family is already stretched, having an extra mouth to feed is a burden. We aim to keep children in a stable environment and keep things as normal as possible for them. By sponsoring an orphan, you can help make their everyday life a little more bearable. You can make sure they get three meals a day, and go to school and live as normal a life as possible. Will you help an orphan today?
We provide families with the opportunity to cater to the needs of their children by providing them with a food cart they can use to sell various foods. The money they make can be used to support themselves. This scheme allows families to get out of the cycle of depending on charity and live a dignified and proud life.
The Tuk-Tuk project is a GRF sponsored employment opportunity. We provide families with their own Tuk-Tuk, a small scooter driven business on wheels! It allows families to sell their products and provide for their families without having to rely on aid agencies.
As part of our ethos, we always endeavour to allow people to become self-sufficient, so they do not rely on financial aid long term. The Olive Tree Project pays for an olive tree to be planted in Palestine. This allows farmers to harvest the fruit, produce and sell olive oil year after year. Eventually, we hope enough people will donate so they no longer need us.
