The humanitarian situation in Gaza continues to deteriorate. The United Nations reported in 2012 that without significant changes, Gaza would be unlivable by 2020. We are now in 2020, and the situation in Gaza is stark. Over 50% of children live below the poverty level, and 95% of the tap water is not safe to drink.
While Congress recently voted to restore $150 million in humanitarian aid and security for Palestinians, the Trump administration can and must do more to improve the declining situation in Gaza.
Please ask your member of Congress to join U.S. Representatives Pocan and Dingell in urging the Trump administration to alleviate the ongoing crisis by restoring all humanitarian aid and working to end the Gaza blockade.
