UNRWA Updated oPt Flash Appeal April – December 2024

Wednesday, April 24, 2024

This is the second revision of the UNRWA Flash Appeal for the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt), covering the period April – December 2024. UNRWA is seeking US$ 1.21 billion to address the most critical humanitarian needs of 1.7 million of the most vulnerable refugees and non-refugees in Gaza, as well as over 200,000 individuals in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem. This appeal comes in response to the ongoing and unprecedented escalation of conflict and resulting needs in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank. It outlines the resource requirements to reduce suffering and prevent further loss of life.

The entire 2.3 million population of the Gaza Strip is in need, on the brink of famine. Most health, water and shelter infrastructure has been flattened or placed out of commission by Israeli military operations and denial of access.
