Help children caught in the crossfire

Help children caught in the crossfire

Millions of children’s lives are at risk, it is estimated that around 59 children will die every day from hunger in Gaza if the conflict escalates.

We're already working in the West Bank area to meet people’s most urgent needs. Please donate today to help bring relief to areas of greatest need that we and our partners can reach.

We are also working alongside 30 NZ organisations and calling on the government to urgently provide emergency evacuation and humanitarian visas to allow Palestinians in Gaza to resettle in Aotearoa. Learn more here or click below to donate.
