Since 7 Oct 2023, the conflict between Palestine and Israel has escalated to an unprecedented level with the number of casualties soaring. In total, there are over 30,000 deaths and 80,000 injuries. More than half of household units, hundreds of buildings, including schools, hospitals and churches, were destroyed by hundreds of air raids in Gaza Strip. Among those who passed away in Gaza, almost 70% were children and women, and more than 12,300 children’s precious lives have been lost! Children, women and patients are struggling to survive as there is a shortage of water, food, medicine and fuel. The United Nations estimated that the displaced population is around 1.95 million in Gaza Strip, humanitarian assistance is urgently needed.
