Terrifying sounds of airstrikes hitting nearby buildings are everywhere in Gaza. Hundreds of people have been killed and more than one thousand injured. The local hospitals are asking for people to donate blood. 

Amidst the ongoing attack, MECA team and partners in Gaza are preparing to provide emergency assistance to families who have fled their homes to seek shelter with relatives or at schools being used as makeshift shelters as well as procuring emergency medical supplies for hospitals and clinics. 

Electricity is out in most areas of Gaza but we are still in contact with all of our staff. Dr. Mona El-Farra, our Gaza Project Director, left her apartment earlier today after a residential building in her neighborhood was leveled by an Israeli airstrike. Thousands of people have left their homes, especially in the areas close to the separation fence.As Dr. Mona explains, “We expect the worst.”We at MECA extend our solidarity and support to the families in Gaza enduring another brutal attack by the Israeli occupation.  

Please join MECA and our partners in providing emergency aid to families in Gaza with a donation today.
