GAZA RESPONSE FUND
The crippling effects of the last attacks in Gaza can still be felt by the people, in which 1.523 people were killed, and up to 11,231 were injured (including 3,436 children and 3,540 women, 10 percent of whom now suffer permanent disability). Due to the disproportionate amount of disabilities, there has been a drastic rise in unemployment. With Gaza becoming the city with the highest unemployment rates in the world (43 percent), 80 percent of the 1.8 million people have to dependent on international aid. In terms of health, there are a number of problems, of which the malnutrition is one. Since the blockade in 2000, there was a 60 percent rise of malnutrition and by 2014, 10 percent of children in Gaza were still inflicted with stinting and chronic malnutrition.
