One year ago, the Gaza strip was ravaged by an Israeli military operation (‘Protective Edge’) that lasted 50 days. This hugely disproportionate conflict saw the Gaza strip devastated, with entire neighbourhoods left in ruins.

Over 1,400 Palestinian civilians were killed, and a third of them were children. Six Israeli civilians were also killed by Palestinian militant rocket fire.

Recovering from an emergency in any context is never as simple as dusting yourself off and returning to life before the disaster.

All this on top of the pre-existing challenges in health, education, employment and road networks.
