Occupied Palestinian Territory

Save the Children is one of the largest non-governmental organisations working in Gaza.

Our new report - 'Defenceless'

All Palestinian children face a myriad of risks, but one sub-set of is uniquely vulnerable and suffers consistent violations of their fundamental rights: children who endure Israeli military detention

We have been working in the region for more than 30 years. 

When fighting escalated between Israel and Palestinian forces in Gaza in July 2014, thousands of children’s lives were at risk. We were able to help provide vital supplies to injured children and their families, thanks to your donations.

Our teams were able to deliver:

  • life-saving medical supplies, food and clean water
  • hygiene kits for newborn babies, including a blanket and washable nappy
  • household essentials, such as soap and kitchen equipment

As part of our work, we are also advocating for children’s rights and are working to protect children from violence and abuse.
