Islamic Relief is urgently procuring life-saving medical supplies to support hospitals in Gaza pushed to breaking point as they treat the victims of recent border clashes.
Over 50 Palestinians have been killed in Israeli gunfire over the past few days, including an eight-month-old baby, and more than 2,700 people have been injured. The victims have been involved in largely peaceful protests near the Israeli border which have come under fire.
A recent spike in seasonal rainfall in parts of East Africa, which has previously been suffering from long periods of drought, has resulted in widespread flooding across large parts of Somalia, Kenya and now Ethiopia.
Malak is 8 years old, and she was diagnosed with cholera. Children like Malak are especially vulnerable, and are in desperate need for immediate treatment.
The outbreak of cholera has been described as the largest outbreak in world history with over 1 million people affected by the disease.This treatable disease can be contained, but unfortunately it has spread and claimed the lives of thousands of people. Children are among the worst affected.
International Non-Government Organisations working in Yemen condemn in the strongest terms the abhorrent attack on an ICRC vehicle that resulted in the killing of an employee of the International Committee of the Red Cross earlier today, 21 April 2018. We are deeply shocked by the death of Hanna Lahoud, a member of the humanitarian community who gave his life delivering assistance to people in dire need of aid. Our deepest condolences go to Hanna’s family, friends and colleagues at the International Committee of the Red Cross.
