How you can help Gaza: make your voice heard

Over 2 million people in Gaza are suffering the unimaginable consequences of war.

An immediate and lasting ceasefire is the only humanitarian action that now matters.

Here are 5 ways you can stand in solidarity and make your voice heard.

Sign the petition: call for a ceasefire now

Your voice matters, and our collective voice is powerful.

Join us in calling for an immediate and lasting ceasefire.

  • Call for an end to the blockade that is preventing Gaza’s civilians from accessing food, fuel and water.
  • Call for the protection of all civilians, including the unconditional release of all hostages.
  • Call for a path to real and lasting peace for Palestinian and Israeli people.

By keeping the pressure up together we have the best chance of convincing the UK government and the international community to bring an end to this catastrophe.

Email your MP

We’ve been hearing from our colleagues in Gaza how horrific the situation is. They've recorded messages documenting what they’re seeing, hearing and feeling.

Our MPs need to hear those voices, and speak out as our representatives in Parliament. They have the power to influence political action.

Share these stories to help keep pressure on UK leaders to demand an immediate and lasting ceasefire now.

Our children face huge challenges to access bathrooms, and to access food. Currently we face challenges in having bread or wheat flour and drinking water. I cannot guarantee that the place that we are in now is safe.”

Help keep the pressure on by displaying posters in your community.

You can stick them on your windows or ask friends, neighbours, community spaces or local businesses to display them.

The continuing bombardment of Gaza has made a full-scale humanitarian response impossible.

Although some aid has been allowed in, it is nowhere near enough for the 2.3 million people in desperate need of food, clean water, shelter and safety.

As soon as it is safe to do so our full response will include:

  • Supporting our partners — The Palestinian Medical Relief Society (PMRS), Juzoor, CFTA, and Palestinian Environmental Friends (PEF) — to respond in their communities
  • Providing people with clean water, sanitation and hygiene items
  • Rehabilitation of water and wastewater networks that have been destroyed in the bombing
  • Providing food and other essential household items for people who have lost their homes or their incomes

We are looking for a ceasefire. We are looking for humanitarian aid to support the resilience of the people in the Gaza Strip.”
