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.
