A year has passed since the beginning of the last war on Gaza, and limited progress has been achieved to rebuild the lives of those affected or tackle the root causes of conflict.
To date, 100,000 Palestinians remain displaced living in dire conditions in schools and poor condition shelters, and over 300,000 children are still in need of immediate psychosocial support.
Since the end of February, World Vision JWG has been providing early recovery interventions to approximately 90,000 people:
WV has rehabilitated a total of 1389 damaged agricultural properties. This raises the total interventions by WV in the livelihood sector to:
- 2067 dunums of agricultural lands
- 250 green houses,
- 36140 meters of irrigation pipelines
In addition, 195 Households have benefited from installing and rehabilitating of water wells and 235 fishermen were provided with fishing kits to help resume their fishing livelihood.
On the other hand, the process is ongoing to support 70 youth entrepreneurs to reestablish their small business projects that have been damaged by the war.
World Vision has been working in the Holy Land since 1975 serving the poor and marginalized and is committed to advocating for the improved well-being of children as well as empowering Palestinian and Israeli voices that advocate for peace and justice. World Vision is currently working in Jerusalem, West Bank and Gaza areas.
