Resources for Gaza

We’ve compiled a list of ways that you can donate, lobby the government and demonstrate your solidarity – calling for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza and a halt to the killing of innocent civilians.

3 November 2023

Oxfam has said the humanitarian crisis in Gaza is like nothing it’s seen before. Save the Children says the 3,195 children who have been killed in Gaza over the past three weeks (published 29 October) surpasses the annual number of children killed in conflict zones worldwide since 2019. During the same period, 29 children have been killed in Israel and 33 in the West Bank, the charity says, quoting figures from the Ministries of Health in Gaza and Israel respectively.

More than 1,400 people were killed in the Hamas attacks in Israel on 7 October 2023, and according to the Israeli authorities, Hamas is currently holding over 200 hostages, with children among this number. Since then, Israel’s air forces have bombarded Gaza and its troops have encircled the city. Over 9,000 people have been killed. The Israeli authorities have also cut access to water, electricity and fuel in Gaza. Amnesty International has said that “the collective punishment of Gaza’s civilian population by Israeli authorities is a war crime – it is cruel and inhumane”.

There have been repercussions all over the world, with a rise in Islamophobia and anti-Semitic hate crimes across the globe.

Despite all of this, neither the government nor the opposition in the UK has yet called for a ceasefire. In light of this, we’ve put together a list of ways you can lend your support and highlighted a few creatives who have responded to the crisis.
