Story

Many women in the besieged region have also said they go weeks without showering amid dire humanitarian conditions.

With more than a million displaced people currently sheltering in Rafah, the city has been overwhelmed, with more than four times its usual population as Palestinians fleeing war seek refuge in extremely overcrowded conditions.

ISRA-UK is preparing to send an all-female deployment to Egypt to prepare and pack a 40ft container with emergency hygiene packs for women and children in Gaza.

Travelling during Ramadan, the British women’s group will be packing boxes of period pads, panty liners, wipes, and mother and baby hygiene items and toiletries onto pallets in Egypt before the aid is transported directly to Gaza through the Rafah border, authorised by the Palestine Ministry of Social Affairs.

We need to raise enough money to send multiple pallets of hygiene packs in containers that form our aid convoy of trucks to Gaza.

We need your support to help make this happen. You can donate directly to our campaign via this JustGiving page or to the JustGiving page of one of our fundraisers:
