UNICEF’S State of Palestine Appeal: Humanitarian action for children
Since 7 October, the conflict escalation has led to grave humanitarian consequences including the reported loss of thousands of children and women, along with soaring humanitarian needs and an estimated 160 children being born every day under precarious circumstances.
1.5 million internally displaced persons, over 60 per cent of the Gazan population, face an increasingly dire humanitarian situation with limited access to basic needs such as water, electricity and health services.
UNICEF is delivering immediate life-saving humanitarian assistance in the Gaza Strip to support conflict-affected and displaced people. Services are being supported through supply delivery, partners and remote service provision. In the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, UNICEF is scaling up humanitarian preparedness and is responding to immediate needs.
UNICEF requires US$154.4 million to respond to the humanitarian situation in the State of Palestine, this funding will support the continuation of gender-responsive WASH, health, child protection and education services in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank as well as the provision of multi-purpose cash assistance.

UNICEF’S appeal regarding the war in Ukraine: Support for children and families
The war has been devastating for Ukraine’s families. UNICEF and partners are on the ground providing support for those in need.
UNICEF was in Ukraine before the war broke out, and in the weeks and months since has stayed and delivered. We stand with the children of Ukraine and will continue working with partners to support them through the war and beyond. Read more about UNICEF’s work here.
More than 5 million children are in need of humanitarian assistance as they continue to suffer the deadly consequences of a brutal war not of their making. The war has sparked displacement on a scale and speed not seen since World War II – with far-reaching impact across the region and beyond. By early August 2022, more than 6.6 million individual refugees from Ukraine had been recorded across Europe, while millions more people had been internally displaced in Ukraine.
The large-scale displacements being seen could have lasting consequences for generations to come. Children fleeing war in Ukraine are at heightened risk of human trafficking and exploitation. Meanwhile, attacks using explosive weapons in populated urban areas have inflicted civilian casualties, including children, and considerable damage to essential infrastructure and services.
After eight years of conflict in eastern Ukraine and the escalation in violence in February 2022, families are in shock, desperate for safety, and need access to essential services – including health, education, protection, water and sanitation – as well as life-saving supplies.
