Tell Congress to act to prevent a COVID-19 crisis in Gaza

The number of COVID-19 cases in Gaza continues to grow exponentially. With the Gaza health system already critically overburdened and the whole society suffering as the result of 13 years of blockade, action is needed to ensure that this epidemic is contained and that those who fall ill can access needed medical care.

Israel, as the occupying power, is obligated to ensure that Palestinians under its control have access to appropriate medical care.  This includes an obligation to Gaza that Israel is not meeting.  AFSC and others have repeatedly called for an end to the Gaza blockade. Now this call is even more urgent, as assistance is critically needed for those who are impacted by COVID-19.  

Take action today to demand an end to the blockade.
