Full bellies. Safe shelters.

Every child.

Following years of a devastating blockade in Gaza and a heart-wrenching attack on Israel, the Israeli government began a brutal campaign against the Gazan people that many scholars of ethnic cleansing are arguing amounts to an ongoing genocide. Over 30,000 Palestinians have already been killed, with the most frequently targeted age group being five-year-olds. U.N. Secretary General Antonio Guterres recently called Gaza a "graveyard for children" and more than 12,000 kids have already been murdered.

Despite a siege allowing very little humanitarian aid into Gaza from elsewhere, Millie's Bookshelf has managed to secure a route for supplies from within the territory. By the end of 2023, we managed to reach more than 400 children with life-saving food and sanitation supplies. Help us reach more children in 2024!
