Gaza urgent appeal




Twice the population of Auckland are displaced within Gaza. Many seeking “safety” in an area the size of Takapuna – Devonport. ShelterBox is working with other humanitarian organisations including MAP (Medical Aid for Palestinians) to deploy emergency shelter and essential items to as many people in Gaza as we can support. Together with MAP, we are procuring items in Egypt and Türkiye. The situation is complex, but we intend that our aid will reach people in the coming weeks via the Rafah border crossing between Egypt and Gaza.

Items like tarpaulins and rope will help people repair damaged buildings and make shelters watertight. Blankets, mattresses, pillows and floormats will help people stay warm. We are also providing washing sets, water carriers, kitchen sets, and items like nappies, toothbrushes, and sanitary items.
