In the Palestinian Territory – the West Bank, East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip, over a quarter of the population lives below the poverty line, with a high rate of unemployment, limited health services, and lack of opportunity.
The burden of the ongoing conflict and blockade has caused debilitating hardship for the refugee communities. Over fifty percent of the population in the West Bank and Gaza rely on aid from relief organizations. Almost 2 million people inside Gaza suffer from the blockade, with little access to the most basic services.
United Hands Relief works with a range of local partners to help communities to ensure that they have access to food, water, education, shelter and stability. We respond to humanitarian crises. We help communities become self-sufficient through sustainable development.
