Humanitarian organisations have been forced to watch the growing civilian crisis in the Gaza Strip from the sidelines, unable to send in supplies or to properly help those in need among the region’s 2.3 million population.
“We sleep with 20 people in one room, without electricity, and it is very difficult to find water,” Tdh Gaza office director Khitam Abuhamad told SWI swissinfo.ch by email. “The night is scary for us, as it is for all the people in Gaza, and we try to sleep knowing that this could be our last night. We always say goodbye to each other before we go to sleep. Waking up every morning is like a miracle.”
