Gaza, which is under ambargo and siege for a long while, is the world’s largest open-air prison. Two-million Palestinians deprived of their rights to travel freely are struggling to survive in the city encircled by high security walls. The basic necessities of human life such as access to hospitals, food, medications, accommodation, education and electricity is seldom possible in the city due to recurrent Israeli attacks.
IHH’s Gaza activities are coordinated through IHH Gaza office set up in 2009. The Gaza office is in charge of developing projects that will meet the need of Gazans. The Office facilitates relief aid and healthcare while providing regular education to over 2000 Palestinians through 3 education centers affiliated to the office.
