The death toll is rapidly rising due to the conflict between Israel and Hamas. And now there’s a deadly health crisis emerging. 

Over 2 million people in Gaza lack access to clean water, food, medicine and energy. At one shelter Action Against Hunger supports, there are now over 24,000 people – with 60% of the children there suffering from diarrhoea. In conditions like this, the spread of infectious diseases is a major risk.  

We call for a lasting ceasefire to save lives and to allow more humanitarian aid into Gaza. The international community, including the UK, must hold all sides to account for breaches of international law and to ensure the safety and protection of civilians.  

Will you add your name to our message to Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and Foreign Secretary David Cameron? 

We call for the Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and Foreign Secretary David Cameron to urgently use the UK’s diplomatic powers to: 

  • call for a lasting ceasefire 
  • increase the daily flow of humanitarian aid coming to Gaza – including water, fuel, food and medicine – to restart vital infrastructure such as hospitals and water and sanitation services 
  • prioritise the protection of all civilians from military action 
  • ensure International Humanitarian law is upheld 
  • increase humanitarian funding to urgently meet people’s basic needs 
  • prevent the use of violence against civilians by Israeli settlers in Area C of the West Bank and end restrictions on the movement of Palestinian communities in the West Bank.
