We’ve curated a list of our charity partners who are providing medical care, food, and shelter to those affected. You can support them by making a gift from a  Giving Account or donating to them directly.

 

Amos Trust

Amos Trust are a small creative human rights organisation committed to challenging injustice, building hope and creating positive change in the Middle East. A gift to Amos Trust will help support their partners in Gaza to provide emergency care and meet the essential needs of affected communities.

British Red Cross

Staff and volunteers from the British Red Cross, and its international connections, are working around the clock to respond to the urgent needs in both conflict areas. They are helping to treat causalities and provide humanitarian assistance through their local teams. They are currently asking for donations to help people on the ground provide direct assistance.

Christian Aid

Christian Aid has been working with the poorest and most vulnerable people in the Middle East since the early 1950s, when they provided humanitarian relief to Palestinian refugees. They are currently working with Zochrot, an Israeli civil society organisation based in Tel Aviv, to provide trauma based psychological assistance to Israelis who have been affected by the escalation of violent conflict.

Their established partners in Gaza are all responding heroically in difficult circumstances. They're responding with medical relief and community-led initiatives such as food, shelter, sanitation and cash. This includes building mobile bathrooms to working with local farmers to get fresh vegetables for families that have left their homes to escape airstrikes. However, it's dangerous to move around, and supplies of essentials are running low. 

They are ready to scale up their work with or without the ceasefire, but to do so need more funding.  Please give what you can. Your donations can make a huge difference to those affected by this crisis.

Embrace the Middle East

Embrace the Middle East have been supporting Christian partners in the Middle East for 170 years. They currently support projects in Israel, Palestine, Egypt, Lebanon, Iraq and Syria as they work to transform lives and restore the dignity of the most excluded and marginalised communities. Their goal is to contribute to a culture of human flourishing in a troubled region.

Their emergency Gaza appeal that was launched in October, has been the biggest appeal in their 170-year history. Their partner, Al Ahli Hospital, was hit by an aid drop damaging their power supply but they also managed to get a fuel delivery from WHO so they have been able to continue for now whilst repairs are made to the solar panels if possible. Another partner has said up two health clinics outside the church compound to treat as many people as they can without adding to the hospital’s capacity. This is all possible thanks to the generosity of supporters.

Friends of the Holy Land

Friends of the Holy Land, is a non-political Christian Charity. Their mission is to secure a resilient and enduring Christian community in the West Bank, Gaza, Israel and Jordan - the part of the world that Christians call the Holy Land.

Great Commission Society (GCS) Israel-Gaza Appeal

In the midst of the ongoing conflict between Israel and Gaza, the Great Commission Society (GCS) has is focussed on providing humanitarian aid and spreading gospel hope. One area that drew their attention was Ashkelon in southern Israel, where 350 residents had to evacuate due to relentless attacks from Hamas. Among these evacuees were particularly vulnerable individuals, including single mothers and children who are unable to access state assistance.
 
GCS volunteers, in collaboration with partner organisations, have also been working diligently to provide displaced families with shelter, food, clothing, and other essentials. Despite limited resources, they managed to provide three weeks’ worth of aid to forty-five individuals in dire need. Their volunteers have also been offering trauma counselling to help people cope with the emotional scars of conflict. Alongside this, they share the message of hope and resilience found in the Gospel.
 
To sustain their vital work, GCS urgently requires support for life-saving resources, including medicine, food, water, and fuel. Every contribution, no matter how small, can make a significant difference in the lives of those who are suffering.

Help The Persecuted

Help The Persecuted are helping Christian families fleeing the conflict. They are focussed on three things:

1. A Safe Place to Sleep
Their Field Ministry Team has launched a new ministry centre where they can host larger numbers of Christian families—offering practical help from beds to food, and clothing, the pastoral care of our team, and connections to local churches.

2. Nutritious Food
They are planning to double the capacity of their Seeds of Hope farm operations. Their farm on the outskirts of Beirut successfully provides vital fresh food to thousands of persecuted and vulnerable people each year. They are also planning to increase their distribution of Emergency Relief Kits, which contain a month’s supply of food basics along with Bibles and Christian literature.

3. Long-term Hope
As the conflict continues, there is a strong chance that many will be displaced for a prolonged period of time. Through their Enduring Livelihood program, which has been successful for many families in Lebanon, they are prepared to help them rebuild their lives in their new homes through the dignity of owning their own small businesses.

SUPPORT HELP THE PERSECUTED

 

Samaritan's Purse
