Our expert recommendations for who to support and how to give.
Humanitarian Relief for the Israel and Palestine War
On October 7th, Hamas, a Palestinian militant group, launched an unprecedented attack on Israel from within the Gaza Strip. In response, Israel began its own counter offensive in Gaza. While the fighting appears to be far from finished, the destruction and loss of innocent lives has been severe and immediate.
As the Israel-Hamas conflict leaves more than 1,300 deceased, thousands injured, and at least 100 taken hostage, this attack is the deadliest offensive that Israel has experienced in 50 years.
As we come together to help those in need, we’ve compiled a list of credible organizations that are actively working to provide emergency relief to the victims of this tragedy. Here are some recommendations that you can use to get involved in supporting the people of Israel, Gaza, and the affected surrounding communities.
