A Letter from Gaza
This winter, millions of Palestinians will be at risk as temperatures plummet, with high winds, rain and snow wreaking havoc on lives of families already struggling with poverty and refugee hood.
My name is Maryam and I work for Interpal in the Gaza Strip. As a mother, the most difficult part of my job is helping other mothers who are beside themselves with worry over how to keep their children fed and warm. Conflict has once again erupted in Gaza leaving no families safe from violence.
In Lebanon and Jordan, mothers in refugee camps continue to struggle against the cold, miserable weather while living in poverty and continued displacement. Thousands of Palestinian refugee families are facing freezing temperatures in fragile, inadequate homes, often with only a plastic sheet covering the ground or roof.
The mother is the heart of a family, and this why I am appealing to you today to give mothers a helping hand this winter. In doing so, you are helping to protect families and communities during the winter months from ongoing misery. Together we can heat their homes, protect their health and warm their hearts.
