UNICEF's emergency scaled-up response in Gaza is targeting under five year old children and mothers, children who will attend public schools, and vulnerable households in the most affected communities. Due to the ceasefire announcement, the IDP population is currently very fluid. As the population stabilises, so too will activities that will adapt and transfer to the locations of the conflict affected populations. UNICEF is currently focusing on supporting affected children and families in shelters, host families, and the communities that have been most severely hit.
Water Sanitation and Hygiene
UNICEF is working closely with partners and the Ministry of Education in planning a comprehensive Back to School programme for children in Gaza:
