Since 2007, families in Gaza have been living under a blockade, often unable to access the vital healthcare they need. For children suffering from malnutrition and anaemia, a lack of basic medicine can have lifelong impacts. With this Gift for Peace, children under 6 years old can be referred to the clinic for a full check-up from a doctor and any basic medicine they require.
The gift of medicine will help a child like Hana¹ (pictured on the card) in Gaza. She was diagnosed with anaemia at the age of four. Act for Peace’s partner on the ground is supporting children like her by providing lifesaving medicine and treatment.
Hana’s mother said:
“It's really hard, these days we can't afford everything for the children, sometimes my children go to school without even a penny in their pockets, no money, so they can't buy anything.”
This Gift for Peace will help to provide access to critical physical and emotional support for many families like Hana’s. With your support, together, we can help children like Hana and create a world where everyone has a safe place to belong.
Christmas is an opportunity to share your values and reflect together on what it means to share joy with others.
When you order your gift for a kid, we will also send you an additional blank postcard, inviting you to write a message or encourage your young child, grandchild or loved one to draw a picture of support for children in Gaza. If you’d like to send it back, we will pass it on to the team on the ground.
¹Hana’s name has been changed to protect her identity.
