Jerusalem – The Humanitarian Appeal for the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt) was launched today in Ramallah by the Humanitarian Coordinator, Maxwell Gaylard. The appeal seeks USD 416 million to respond to the humanitarian needs generated by the ongoing violations of basic human rights in the oPt. This crisis in the oPt has left communities vulnerable to human rights abuses and rendered 1.8 million Palestinians in need of humanitarian assistance. “Progress in the peace process is desperately needed—the coping strategies of Palestinian communities are being eroded with each year that passes”, said the Humanitarian Coordinator, Gaylard.
