A surge of violence in the Gaza Strip has led to the deaths of at least 27 Palestinians, the victims included two pregnant women and two infants, a four-month-old baby and her father and the list goes on.
Around two million Palestinians live in Gaza, the economy of which has suffered years of occupation and blockades as well as recent foreign aid cuts and sanctions.
Our brothers and sisters in Gaza are in need of our support especially during the blessed month of Ramadan. Their battle for survival throughout the year is never ending. This month it will only get tougher for them as they try to secure food for their children and themselves.
The situation in Gaza is expected to escalate, we need to act urgently.
