1. Some websites to check: Direct Relief, and Doctors Without Borders

I'm sure you can find others who have been there all along, as well.

2. Gaza has been isolated and in desperate trouble for more than a decade

This is nothing new, though this has escalated to an even more desperate crisis. I found these:

With a population of over two million people on just over 140 square miles of land, Gaza is one of the most densely populated places on earth.

A decade of blockade along Gaza’s borders has stifled its economy. Many goods are banned from export and import, including farmers’ produce and vital medicines. As a result, poverty is rife in Gaza and its residents face a severe shortage of medicines and medical supplies.

Many hospitals lack modern medical supplies to treat Gaza’s sick. They face shortages of supplies like blood bags and common medications. The thousands of Palestinians who live with disabilities struggle with inaccessible facilities and inadequate care. Many in Gaza fall ill from water that is not potable and the poor sanitation that pervades communities without sewage networks. Basic life essentials like water and electricity are at a severe shortage. Power cuts occur daily. Faucets often run dry.

3. Gaza is a prison, but our great ally isn't violating human rights. Just
