Here’s what you can do to support Palestinians

As violence continues escalating in Palestine, people from all over the world have expressed solidarity and sadness for Palestinians following Israel’s act of ethnic cleansing in Jerusalem’s Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood. The ongoing war has seen the largest outbreak of violence in the area since 2014 when Israeli police entered the Al-Aqsa mosque and threw stun grenades inside.

Death toll is on the rise after a week of increased crackdown on Palestinians in the West Bank and intense airstrikes on Gaza by Israeli forces. This has eventually lead to a Palestinian uprising, with the globe coming together to join an unprecedented show of unity where the world rallied in solidarity with protests taking place around the world, including Paris, London, Tokyo, Madrid, Mexico, Canada, Ireland, Australia and the US.  If you’re looking to take action in supporting Palestinians during these hard times, we’ve outlined a few actionable ways that you can do so.



Platforms and initiatives that support Palestine, which aim to provide free medical help, clean water, food packages, warm meals, clothing, support to orphans and widows, and educational resources to those suffering poverty and unemployment due to Israeli occupation down below.
