Palestine and its people are today dependent on outside aid.

    Occupation of the land, the barrier constructed along and within the West Bank as well as land, air and sea blockades on Gaza, has strangled Palestine and its people.

    Around 4 in 5 Gazans rely on donations for survival. Originally refugees, they are imprisoned behind concrete walls and humiliating military checkpoints.

    Despite the empty rhetoric, the suffering of the Palestinian people continues.

    Ummah Welfare Trust has been working in Gaza for many years. In 2010 a field office was established in Gaza through which many projects today are being administered.
