Palestine and its people are today dependent on outside aid.

Occupation of the land, the barrier constructed along and within the West Bank as well as land, air and sea blockades on Gaza, has strangled Palestine and its people.

Around 4 in 5 Gazans rely on donations for survival. Originally refugees, they are imprisoned behind concrete walls and humiliating military checkpoints. Despite the empty rhetoric, the suffering of the Palestinian people continues.

Ummah Welfare Trust delivers a range projects in Palestine, particularly in the Gaza strip. Orphans and hifdh students are sponsored; food vouchers and water programmes are implemented; and seasonal programmes always take place. Alhamdulillah, the charity’s trauma centre also provides free counseling and support to thousands of children.

3,500 orphans
are currently being sponsored in Gaza
