CARE FOR GAZA
Care For Gaza Appeal
More than seven years of economic crisis have brought the Palestinian economy to the verge of collapse. Living levels have dropped considerably and levels of poverty, deprivation and unemployment are increasing rapidly throughout the territories. A majority of Palestinians, 67%, live below the income poverty line valued as $2, and about half of them 39 %, live in extreme poverty.
In Gaza Strip, more than 70% of households live below the poverty line, and depend on Aids from NGOs and internationally agencies. A savage war hit Gaza in the eighth day of Ramadan last year (2014), killed more than 1900 person, injured around 10,000 person, destroyed over than 10,000 home and enforced thousands of people to evacuate from their homes leaving everything behind them. These people till now are staying in parks, around hospital and in streets without a penny to buy their essential needs.
Of the 1.8 million people in Gaza, 80% depend
on humanitarian aid...
According to the latest studies on orphans, there are about
53,000 orphans in Gaza alone...
The terrible toll on civilians is shocking. Hospitals and water supplies are under massive strain and the needs are increasing by the day. The bad economic and social situation in Gaza has multiplied the poverty rate to its highest level. Water, food and electricity shortages has become worse.
All of that is an important reason to why we are going to implement various projects and helping as many people as we can, by sponsorship to the most needy families, and give them a better health and living environment.
1. FOOD PACKS & BREAD DISTRIBUTION

- The high number of needy and poor people who need to alleviate their suffering.
- High cost of food and families need.

poverty and high unemployment rate.
Each of the above, is clear reason why this project is important and how it will help a number of families in Gaza City, And the main goal is to provide food & bread packs daily for fixed duration for up top 1000 poor & needy families in Gaza

The masjid is the heart of any Muslim community. Providing much more than a place of worship, many offer education and are a base from which essential community services are delivered.
The first and foremost duty performed by the Messenger of Allah SallAllahu 'alayhi wasallamupon entering Madinah was to build a Masjid. He said, 'Whosoever builds a house (masjid) for the pleasure of Allah, whether it be small or large, Allah builds for him a house in Paradise.' - at-Tirmidhi, Ibn Khuzaymah, Ibn Hibban
GER together with its International partners is trying to build new masjids or reconstructs damaged masjids due to war, conflict or natural disasters in several countries including in Gaza, Palestine. You can donate the whole cost of the masjid or part of it.

6. TRAUMA CENTRE FOR CHILDREN IN GAZA
Children in Gaza are growing up seeing life as an inescapable war. Those aged eight and over have already witnessed three huge military escalations.
It is estimated that 400,000 children now need direct psychological intervention.
Due to witnessing violence, the killing of loved ones or the destruction of homes, these children suffer mood disorders, anxiety, irritability and have problems with attachment.
'Mercy is only removed from the one who is destined for wretchedness.'
- Al Adab al Mufrad, Bukhari
With the help of international partners, we plan to build a trauma centre in Northern Gaza, providing psycho-social support to children who need help. Targeting children and adolescents, the centre will help relieve psychological stress and tension through individual and group counselling sessions.
Two hundred children (aged 5 -15 years) will be supported in this two-storey centre, which will be built on 300 square metres of land.
The cost of this building is approximately $500,000, and its annual running costs will be approximately $100,000 per year. Donate for this centre and help heal the scars that have been inflicted on our young brothers and sisters.
You can donate Sadaqah and Lillah for this appeal.
