– ‘Gaza is on the edge’: Emergency aid appeal launched (RT, Aug 7, 2014):
British aid agencies have launched an emergency appeal to help the thousands of Palestinians caught up in “a humanitarian emergency affecting virtually every man, woman and child in Gaza.”
The Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) said “even before the conflict began the people of Gaza were close to breaking point.” They called on the public to make charitable donations to aid those blighted by the conflict.
The appeal is being launched after hundreds of thousands of people fled their homes with many needing not only shelter but food, water, household items and often medical care. There are now 65,000 people in Gaza who have seen their homes severely damaged or destroyed.
