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 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 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. Their established partners in the area are ready to respond with medical relief and community-led initiatives such as food, shelter, sanitation and protection. Every prayer, every financial gift, every action will help Christian Aid share hope with people in the crisis.
As the violence and destruction continues, the organisation is launching an appeal to help those affected.
“Our partners in Gaza have told us that hospitals are overwhelmed by casualties, and shops are running out of goods such as bread and baby milk. They stand ready to respond with medical relief and community-led initiatives such as food, shelter, sanitation and protection.”
Christian Aid works alongside local partners to ensure aid gets to those most in need. Every donation will make a difference; £6 will pay for a basic hygiene kit while a donation of £37 will pay for a food parcel for a family of five in Gaza.
Embrace the Middle East
For most of their history, Embrace have focused on just one area: the Middle East. They currently support humanitarian projects in Israel, Palestine, Egypt and Lebanon 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.
Embrace is currently providing funds for medicines for the hospital in Gaza. So far they have been able to procure three deliveries of medicines and medical supplies from the Red Cross/Red Crescent and UNRWA, which are the only agencies allowed by the IDF to get humanitarian aid into Gaza City. However, supplies are still critically low – particularly anaesthesia, antibiotics, surgical supplies, food and fuel.
The need for additional staff to cope with the increase in patients is critical and donations are also being used to pay for some of these staff, ensuring the continuation of life-saving services to civilians in Gaza City.
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. The focus of their work is providing practical help directly to the most needy and vulnerable of our Christian brothers and sisters through a balance of funding immediate relief of emergency needs and practical small projects to help create a sustainable future in the Holy Land – most importantly to give them HOPE.
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 currently focussing 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 escalates, 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.
Samaritan’s Purse is helping meet the physical and spiritual needs of people on both sides of the Israel-Hamas war. In partnership with local churches and ministry partners, they are bringing urgently needed relief to communities deeply impacted by the conflict.
Save the Children
Save the Children have been working in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT) for 50 years and are calling on all sides to do their utmost to protect the children and stop the violence. A gift to Save the Children can help their teams provide support, shelter, educational supplies, and baby hygiene kits to the most vulnerable in this conflict.
World Vision have been working in the OPT for many years and this year they have already helped 136,000 people including 95,000 children. Their support is needed now more than ever and they are ready to meet people's immediate and long-term needs including providing emergency response kits, child-friendly spaces and psychosocial support. A gift to World Vision will go to helping vulnerable children, families and communities impacted by the crisis.
UNICEF UK are extremely concerned by the latest escalation of violence in Gaza. Many children have been killed or injured, and countless others have been exposed to the violence. No place is safe for a child while this intense fighting continues. Following days of air strikes, children and families are running out of food, water and electricity. Medicine and safe access to hospitals is severely restricted.
UNICEF are in Gaza providing life-saving humanitarian support. Medical equipment, food, fuel and access to safe drinking water are desperately needed. As UNICEF, we are also calling for an immediate ceasefire. With more than a million people, nearly half of them children, are in danger ahead of a planned ground assault. The situation is rapidly deteriorating. And children continue to pay the highest price for the violence.
UNICEF UK asks for donations to help protect children in Gaza and the wider State of Palestine.
