GAZA CRISIS

More than 39,000 people have been killed and 70,000 injured in Gaza since October 7.

Last week, most aid agencies warned that more than one in four households in Gaza were enduring “catastrophic” hunger. The risk of famine occurring in the Strip within the next six months was confirmed by the latest Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) report, which showed that the entire population of Gaza, some 2.2 million people, is living with “crisis or worse” levels of acute food insecurity.

Muntada Aid Longterm Projects in Gaza

Muntada Aid PTSD Centre Damaged in Gaza Bombing  

Muntada Aid, in partnership with Palestine Trauma Centre, runs a Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) centre for children and young adults in Gaza, which has now been damaged in the ongoing bombing by Israeli government forces.  

We are worried about the safety of our team members, their families and civilians caught in this recent cycle of violence.
 
"Our centre has been offering support to children who have faced unimaginable trauma throughout their lives. Many of these children were injured, and some children lost their parents and relatives during previous bombings of the Gaza Strip by the Israeli Air Force.
 
Unfortunately, the roof of our building was completely damaged in the ongoing bombing. We are anxious about the safety of children and our team members," said Kabir Miah, Programmes Manager Muntada Aid.
It is one of the few centres offering psychological support and treatment to children with PTSD in Gaza.
 
In 2022, we were able to help over 24,000 people in Gaza with various levels of psychological support.

Our PTSD Centre is Running Sessions from Makeshift Spaces for Children in Gaza

Since the start of the ongoing war, over 7000 children have been killed in Gaza, and thousands more have been injured.

Muntada Aid, in partnership with Palestine Trauma Centre, runs a PTSD clinic in Gaza. Unfortunately, it was bombed in October. But seeing the suffering of children, our brave team on the ground decided to run to some play activity sessions for children in the south of Gaza.

Even before the ongoing war, children in Gaza have long been suffering from various mental health issues.

A study conducted in 2020 found that 53.5 percent of children in Gaza had PTSD. Nearly 90 percent had experienced personal trauma. A study released this summer says 9 out of 10 children in Gaza suffer from some form of conflict-related trauma.

About 50 percent of Gaza’s children suffer from water-related infections.The recent conflict has had a far-reaching and devastating impact on children's wellbeing, according to a new report by Euro-Med Human Rights Monitor, 90 % of the children in Gaza suffer from PTSD.

Clean Water For Gaza

In addition to limited safe water, the Gaza Strip has long been hit by a chronic energy crisis that results in daily blackouts in family homes. Water resources have long been critically scarce in the Gaza Strip, and the situation is getting beyond dire. Ninety five percent of the water extracted from the coastal aquifer is now considered unfit for human consumption. There is over-extraction of water from the aquifer, allowing seawater from the Mediterranean to seep into it, along with sewage and chemicals. To drink, most families depend on water they buy from private vendors at a high cost and without quality control, or on imported water. A 2012 United Nations study warned that the aquifer of the Gaza Strip could become unusable by 2017, with the damage irreversible by 2020.

Seawater desalination is one of the strategic options to help provide 2 million Palestinians in the coastal enclave – including one million children – with safe drinking water. The desalination of seawater from the Mediterranean is essential to curb over-extraction of groundwater from the coastal aquifer, to prevent an environmental disaster and to start the slow process of aquifer restoration.

In addition to limited safe water, the Gaza Strip has long been hit by a chronic energy crisis that results in daily blackouts in family homes.

PTSD Emergency In Gaza

The United Nations calls Gaza "hell on earth" for children.
A study conducted in 2020, before last year's conflict, found that 53.5 percent of children in Gaza were suffering from PTSD. Nearly 90 percent had experienced personal trauma. Gazans' life experiences underscore the unique emotional challenges they face living under constant occupation and frequent conflict. A study released this summer says 9 out of 10 children in Gaza suffer from some form of conflict-related trauma. The lack of an integrated health care system in Gaza compounded by restrictions on mobility, the blockade on goods and services from both Israel and Egypt, and the threat of violence with no place for shelter leaves Gaza with a traumatized population and a system equipped to help.
