Where to donate humanitarian aid for Rafah

On the night of May 26, an Israeli air strike struck the designated 'safe area' north of Rafah city in Tal as-Sultan. The offensive came after President Biden's order that a major strike would be a red line. The Gaza Government Media Office has reported that Israel dropped seven 900kg (2,000-pound) bombs as well as missiles on the displacement camp. Prior to the launch, the Israeli Government had issued no warning or announcement to retreat. In the last two days during the massacre of Rafah, a second strike has followed since Sunday, killing 21 and injuring 45 others. Of the 21 victims, 19 were women. 

As we surpass 200 days of war in Gaza, over 34,000 Palestinians have been killed. About 72 percent of those killed are women and children, according to an update by Gaza’s Government Media Office on Tuesday. The United Nations has reported that every ten minutes, a Palestinian child is injured or killed. 

A World Health Organization (WHO) official said the last hospital in Rafah could become non-functional and a substantial number of deaths could be expected if Israel launches a "full incursion" into the southern Gazan city.

Mass graves, razed hospitals, and the countless civillian deaths of women and children have surfaced as a result of these attacks. The innocent loss of life must come to an end. We have covered local efforts on how we can raise funds. In light of the mounting violence in Rafah, we've compiled a list of ways to advocate against the war. This is what we can do to support.



Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS)

The Palestinian arm of the Red Cross charity organization. It will provide emergency aid including medical service- pre-hospital health care, disaster risk management, psychosocial
support, and rehabilitation services.

Save The Children

Save the Children efforts include providing fuel and water infrastructure for hospitals, delivering mental health services. Additionally, the charity will provide psychosocial support services for children and caregivers, setting up temporary learning spaces, repairing damaged schools, and identifying the most at-risk children for child protection services.

Take Local Action

The Australia Palestine Advocacy Network (APAN)  has a comprehensive, three-step action plan that includes upcoming actions and events from screenings, rallies, and academic talks. You can also follow their step-by-step template to write to your local MP  in support of a ceasefire.


Raise Awareness

#AllEyesonRafah is currently trending on social media, in a concerted effort to not look away from the atrocities committed in Rafah. Raise awareness for the 1.4 million displaced Palestinians fleeing from the war.

In this period, it is more important than ever to uplift Palestinian voices who are covering the war. Journalists and activists like Motaz Azaiza, Fariha Roisin, Noura Erakat, Mariam Barghouti, Mohammed El-Kurd, Hind Khoudary all offer in-depth coverage of the war.
