We'd love to hear your thoughts on #Gaza today. Finish the tweet: "Lasting peace for Israelis & Palestinians is important to me because __."
With 1000s fleeing their homes daily, we provide clean water & food, saving lives in #Gaza. RT to spread the word.
An average of 59 people killed EVERY DAY in #Gaza. RT if you believe we need a permanent end to the conflict NOW.
Our emergency response is reaching 200,000 people in #Gaza. Text HELP to 70066 to give £5 and help us to do even more today.
#Gaza relies heavily on exports - the blockade means exports now only 2% of what they used to be. Gaza economy is therefore devastated.
The damage to #Gaza is estimated at $5billion. Gaza's entire GDP is only around $6.6 billion. Blockade must be lifted for Gaza to recover.
Raw sewage is now spilling onto the streets in #Gaza & risking a health crisis. We need blockade lifted for good to allow Gaza to rebuild.
323 homes destroyed DAILY in #Gaza on average. That's why we're there, delivering aid to thousands who need it TODAY.
Our emergency response is reaching 200,000 people in #Gaza. Text HELP to 70066 to give £5 and help us to do even more today.
The extent of destruction of civilian buildings & infrastructure is the worst Oxfam have seen in nearly 20 years of working in #Gaza.
