Q&A – Gaza ceasefire

What is the situation on the ground in Gaza?

50 days of conflict has put the entire civilian population of Gaza on the brink of a humanitarian catastrophe. Over the last seven weeks, an average of 12 children were killed and 77 were injured every day - 25 of whom were left with permanent disabilities. On a daily basis, an average of six schools were shelled, 435 families lost their homes, and 37 children were orphaned. All of Gaza's children, who make up half of the 1.8 million population, need some form of psychosocial support, according to the UN.

Despite the rapid development of social protection programmes, and the partnerships established with national institutions for the implementation of such interventions, few studies aimed at examining operational progress and challenges of implementing cash-based social protection interventions in Nigeria have been conducted.

Displaced families struggling to survive

They escaped the fighting; now Iraq’s displaced people face another enemy – one they cannot flee: the struggle for survival.

They are homeless, jobless, reliant on the goodwill of host communities whose capacity has already been stretched by the influx of more than 200,000 Syrian refugees.

The UN estimates that 1.45 million people have been displaced in Iraq this year.
