Children in Gaza cannot wait any longer for ceasefire
11,078 people, including over 4600 children, have been killed in Gaza. We demand a complete and unconditional ceasefire, immediately.
Your donations are urgently needed.
The crisis in Gaza and Israel has killed thousands, with many more injured. Children are bearing the brunt of the crisis and are exposed to violence, exploitation, abuse and neglect.
Children are dying. They are scared. They’re sheltering wherever they can and have seen unimaginable horrors. Now, they are running out of time and hope.
We’re working with partners to support children and families with urgent aid and protection. With your donation we can reach more of those affected.
Children are always innocent. Please donate now.

The situation in Gaza is desperate and rapidly deteriorating. Families are struggling to find clean drinking water and food. Hospitals are only able to perform critical surgeries as medical supplies and fuel to run generators are running dangerously low.
As a humanitarian organisation which advocates for children’s rights and principled humanitarian action around the world, Plan International is devastated to witness the horrific violence that has engulfed Gaza and Israel since 7 October.
We condemn violence in the strongest terms and call for an immediate and complete ceasefire by all parties involved.
We call upon all parties to follow international humanitarian law, ensuring civilians, especially children, are protected and to ensure safe and unhindered humanitarian access. We urge the safe return of hostages.
We are calling on the Government of Israel to immediately rescind its order for Palestinians, including staff and patients in hospitals, to leave northern Gaza and to guarantee safe passage for families who need and want to seek safety to any place they feel safe.
We call for immediate and unhindered access of urgently needed humanitarian aid including food, water, fuel and medical supplies and care and access for humanitarian personnel into Gaza.
Children are always innocent victims of war. All children have the right to a life free from violence and fear and it is the collective responsibility of the global community to protect that right.
