Stories from the field: Gaza

Humanitarian Context

2017 marked the 50th anniversary of the Israeli occupation and the 10th anniversary of the Gaza Strip blockade. The lack of any peace and reconciliation on the political horizon, along with the significant decline in donor support in recent years, has resulted in an unsustainable situation in the West Bank and Gaza. The situation remains highly volatile, with the land, air and sea blockade now entering its 11th year, effectively stifling all job opportunities and forcing almost a million Palestinians into food aid dependency.
With three and a half years now passed since the 2014 hostilities that resulted in destruction and loss of life, 2,500 Palestinian refugee families remain displaced and 50,000 homes are still waiting to be repaired.
2017 was marked by numerous restrictions on accessing our work zones and concrete activities but our teams on the ground, in coordination with our local partners, were able to effectively overcome these.
