Amid rising casualties and violence in Gaza, Oxfam's partners on the ground are reporting that vital water and sanitation infrastructure has also been destroyed or badly damaged.

Services are now struggling to cope and the insecurity is making it difficult to deliver aid. Oxfam's partners in Gaza are trying to respond to the mounting human cost of the violence.

From our staff

Elena Qleibo, Acting Food Security and Livelihoods Co-ordinator (Gaza)

 The thing I most enjoy about my role is working with others. For me, this can involve everything from travelling to Oxfam's projects to make sure things are working well, to monitoring and supporting the staff of partner organisations. Oxfam works with a range of partners in the occupied Palestinian Territory - large organisations like the World Food Programme and the European Commission, and smaller, local organisations too. We've got excellent relations with various grassroots organisations, which is really important, especially in the current challenging context and when there are many people in need of support.
