In response to the humanitarian emergency unfolding in Gaza, CLWR is joining leading Canadian aid agencies in the Humanitarian Coalition in seeking to provide critical life-saving aid to those affected.
Estimates indicate that more than one million people have been forced to leave their homes and over 9,000 killed in Gaza. The Coalition is united in its call for all sides in the conflict to protect civilian lives and allow humanitarian aid to reach those in need as quickly as possible. As we work to make sure humanitarian access is restored, your gift will ensure that we can scale up our response swiftly and effectively to deliver life-saving food, water, shelter, and medical care to those who need it. Please join us in prayer for those affected and consider donating.
