Life in Palestine is hard; life in Gaza is harder still.
Living under oppressive rule and threat of constant violence, Gazan people are struggling to get by. 38% of Gazans live in poverty, and over half are food insecure - meaning that they don’t know where their next meal is coming from.
There is also a critical water shortage with 90% of the water from Gaza’s aquifer being undrinkable, which is causing widespread illness and poor health.
SKT Welfare are working hard in Gaza, to provide dignity and aid to those in need.
Donate to our Palestine charity today - 100% of your donation goes to helping disadvantaged Gazans.
SKT Welfare have been working in Gaza for over six years.
We are committed to our life-sustaining projects, focusing on helping to give people access to the basics which they deserve; food, warmth and water.

To date, we have delivered two water desalination plants in Gaza, with each plant producing 50,000 litres of fresh water daily for almost a quarter of a million impoverished people, who previously had to travel miles to collect safe water.
No one should have to live without access to clean water. You can help us keep innocent Gazans healthy and free from water-borne disease.
Donate to Palestine today, and provide life-giving water from only £25.
1.3 million people on the Gaza Strip are food insecure, struggling and scraping for every single meal.
We work hard to alleviate some of that pressure and fight malnutrition; in the last six years, we have provided 23,750 Palestinians with vital food aid, and given 5,000 people fresh, hearty bread.
Since the 2014 conflict began in Gaza, SKT Welfare volunteers have also hand-delivered thousands of parcels in the Palestinian town of Khuza’a. Khuza’a, which has a population of 10,000 people, was hit hard by the conflict, and we are committed to providing the community with long-lasting support.
Donate to Gaza and Khuza’a, and make sure they receive the food they need to survive.
1 in every 4 Palestinians have been forced to flee their homes.
That means that millions are living in sub-standard accommodation, with no heating or running water. Many areas, especially Gaza, face power cuts of up to 12 hours a day. During the winter, this lack of basic power and heating can be fatal for the elderly, the disabled and children.
Our teams work tirelessly, delivering winter kits including warm clothing and blankets during the bitter, cold months. We have given winter kits to almost 3,000 school children in Palestine thanks to your support, so that they can stay healthy and happy every winter.
Our SKT Welfare volunteers work tirelessly on the ground in Cox’s Bazar, delivering food parcels to vulnerable refugee families. Each parcel comprises nutritious, essential items.
