U.N. EMERGENCY RESPONSE FUND ALLOCATES $1.26 MILLION FOR MEDICAL SUPPLIES IN GAZA
  • The Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) reports that today the Central Emergency Response Fund allocated $1.26 million to Gaza. These funds are meant to strengthen the trauma pathway in Gaza to support the rapid procurement of essential medical supplies and their distribution to critical hospitals providing trauma care.
  • OCHA also published today an analytical bulletin covering the situation in the occupied Palestinian territory highlighting that the access to education of over 450,000 children in Gaza is undermined by recurring violence, electricity shortages, the intra-Palestinian divide and the unprecedented financial crisis faced by UNRWA.
