OVERVIEW

A Country In Distress

Update from the Ground

HCI has a three-phase response to rebuilding Gaza.

Our phase one (food, warm meals, and medical aid) is ongoing and we have started our needs assessment for phase two (rebuilding houses) and phase three (reviving businesses).
 
1) Al-Aqsa Medical Relief:
 
The medical supplies procurement has been finalized and the shipment is ready for delivery to the clinic. Due to the ongoing Israeli aggression, in the West Bank and Jerusalem in particular, the delivery has been put on hold until the situation calms down. The emergency clinic is located within Masjid Al Aqsa campus, and therefore the shipment needs to go through the Israeli forces for check up and clearance before being delivered to the clinic.
 
There are still other urgent items that the clinic needs to keep running and saving lives. Please continue to donate.
 
2) Gaza Food Relief:
 
After the ceasefire, families staying in the UNRWA schools either went back to their partially damaged houses or moved to stay together with their relatives. We recently distributed 300 Ready to Eat (RTEs) food parcels and 300 cooked meals during the last week to these families. Due to the current situation, we have decided to stop the provision of the cooked meals and continue with RTEs. We aim to reach 1,650 families within the next week.
 
3) Gaza Medical Relief:
 
We secured and delivered 10,000 COVID19 testing kits to several hospitals in Gaza Strip in collaboration with the Ministry of Health.
 
Now we have chosen to support Al Shifa hospital which is one of the biggest and busiest hospitals in Gaza. Yesterday we provided the hospital with medical items that were requested and approved by the Ministry of Health. Our field team continues to work closely with the Ministry to understand the ongoing needs. 
 
4) House Repairs:
 
We have started needs assessment for the second phase of our response which focuses on the renovation and fixing of the partially damaged houses. According to the information verified by the shelter cluster based on figures from MoPWH, MoSD , UNRWA, the Israeli air strikes in Gaza left 1,148 destroyed housing units, 1,026 housing units severely damaged, and approximately 14,918 housing units with different levels of damage.
