Emergency: Israel-Gaza war

The situation in Gaza is catastrophic. Thousands of civilians have been killed. People are resorting to eating pet food to survive, and hundreds have been killed or wounded while waiting to receive aid from food trucks. Hospitals and clinics are overwhelmed and barely functioning.

Around 1.9 million Palestinians—roughly 85 per cent of the entire population of Gaza—have been forced to flee their homes. More than half of those displaced are crammed into the southern part of Gaza, deprived of essential needs like water, food, shelter and medicines. Some areas have been cut off from assistance for months, with children now dying of malnutrition. 

As the needs in Palestine only continue to increase, it is extremely difficult for humanitarian aid and aid workers to reach the people who need it most. Israeli forces have attacked our convoys, detained our staff, bulldozed our vehicles, and our hospitals have been bombed and raided.

There are not enough hospital beds, not enough supplies, and not enough medications. Surgeons are having to perform amputations without anaesthesia.

As a medical humanitarian organisation working in the middle of the conflict in Gaza, MSF is calling for an immediate and sustained ceasefire. We are calling on the Israeli authorities to stop the indiscriminate bloodshed and civilian harm, allow the safe evacuation of trapped civilians, and allow the delivery of desperately needed humanitarian aid throughout the Gaza strip.


MSF is neutral, impartial and independent. We can do this because of your donations. Help us provide support to those affected by conflict, emergencies and lack of access to healthcare. 

Unless otherwise specified, contributions to Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) are directed to our general emergency fund, which is what we draw upon to deliver lifesaving healthcare wherever it’s needed around the world. Such unrestricted general donations give us the ability to direct funds where the needs are greatest, including under-reported and neglected crises.

Donate Now

When a crisis strikes, we are able to immediately mobilise–sometimes within a matter of hours.

Each donation will contribute to our emergency fund, helping us reach more patients requiring urgent medical attention, no matter who or where they are.
