Emergency relief program for the poorest families in the Gaza Strip (MAA)
US$3,433.00raised of $5,000.00 goal
The phenomenon of poverty in Palestine is characterized by a very specificity that stems from the specificity of the Palestinian cause, and the events and tragedies that the Palestinian people have been subjected to over a century, especially uprooting, displacement, wars, occupation, and deprivation of national rights, this has led to the permanent impoverishment of large groups of the Palestinian people, In essence, poverty is the result of the interaction of a set of structural factors (political, economic and social). From this point of view, and before going into the study of the phenomenon of poverty in the Gaza Strip, it is necessary to refer to the historical context of this phenomenon in Palestinian society.
The Palestinian people were subjected to a process of forced displacement and uprooting in 1948, which led to the displacement of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians to the countries of neighboring countries and in various parts of the earth, and the establishment of the State of Israel on Palestinian land, a large number of Palestinians who were displaced from their cities and villages under the Israeli military war machine sought refuge in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, and later became refugees living in camps, losing all their possessions and lands that constitute their livelihood, hence the series of impoverishment and deprivation began. Later, in 1967, the Israeli occupation forces completed the occupation of the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, and this war was also accompanied by more immigration and asylum. This was followed by many occupation measures, including the annexation of Arab Jerusalem, the confiscation of land, the construction of settlements, the control of water, and the demolition of homes, in addition, the Israeli occupation authorities imposed a set of legislation and military orders that enabled them to control the natural resources of the Palestinians and to control the productive sectors, It was also able to attach the Palestinian economy to the Israeli economy and turn the West Bank and Gaza Strip into a market for Israeli products and a source of cheap labor. Moreover, it has imposed a burdensome tax system that is not commensurate with the income levels of the Palestinians.
At the present time, the rates of poverty and unemployment in the Gaza Strip reach unprecedented levels, with poverty rates exceeding 60% and unemployment rates 45%, which made obtaining the basic necessities of life a major challenge for the majority of Palestinian families.
Our organization (Al-Rahma Charity Association) is considered one of the most important and oldest organizations working in the relief field in the Gaza Strip (since 1993), and we seek to provide relief services to the poorest, weakest, and marginalized groups of the people of the Gaza Strip, and we hope that you will contribute to the relief of these families by supporting Our efforts to reach these groups and help them by donating to this campaign.
