Despite the ceasefire agreed on 26 August 2014, the humanitarian situation in Gaza is still dire, with hundreds of thousands of people in urgent need of shelter, food, medical care and water.
Since July 2014 approximately US$285 million has been committed/contributed to support the humanitarian response in Gaza, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA)’s Financial Tracking Service (FTS).
Humanitarian funding to the Gaza crisis reached its peak in August 2014, with a total of US$207 million committed/contributed (a rate of US$7 million per day). Despite increased requirements for the UN Gaza Crisis Appeal in September, commitments/contributions so far this month indicate a decrease in funding levels to a rate of around US$0.6 million per day.
This crisis briefing paper provides an overview of funding to the humanitarian response in Gaza since July 2014.
