Six months since donors pledged $3.5 billion towards Gaza’s recovery, many people are worse off, according to a report issued earlier this week by 46 aid agencies, including Mennonite Central Committee. An estimated 100,000 people are still homeless and many are living in makeshift camps or schools.
The report’s main recommendations are:
- End the cycle of violence.
- Commit to principled assistance, reconstruction and recovery
- End the blockade and the separation between Gaza and the West Bank
