NRC in Palestine

“A seven-year-old child in Gaza has already witnessed three wars in their lifetime. This is unacceptable.”

Since 2009, NRC has been providing humanitarian assistance and promoting respect for international law in one of the longest-running displacement crises in modern history. We protect and assist Palestinians affected by, or threatened with, displacement in Gaza and the West Bank, including East Jerusalem. We provide legal counselling to promote human rights and improve shelter, water and sanitation facilities. We support the provision of quality education, and help communities prepare for, and respond to, emergencies. We also advocate for the rights of displaced Palestinians locally and internationally.
