Palestine Humanitarian Emergency

Palestinian youth
UNFPA Palestine

As estimated one in every two Palestinians— 2.5 million people—will require humanitarian assistance in 2018. the unique humanitarian context of the oPt is intimately linked to the impact of the Israeli military occupation. The most vulnerable Palestinians are currently denied or restricted access to essential services such as water and health care. A recurrent cycle of shocks, natural and manmade, has eroded the resilience of vulnerable households to cope with the prolonged nature of the humanitarian crisis. Young people protection concerns are widespread, children face high levels of violence, are victims of grave violations of their rights, and suffer from poverty and lack of opportunities.
