Through this Appeal we intend to raise $20,000+ in support of the rebuilding efforts of YMCA Gaza.
On Sunday 16 May 2021, an air raid demolished a building adjacent to the YMCA Gaza’s facilities, causing extensive and direct damage to the building and to the entire surrounding area.
For 11 continuous days the Gaza Strip was bombed. Over 200 civilians lost their lives as a result. The YMCA Gaza’s offices and buildings suffered considerable damage and large parts were destroyed.
Currently there is a cease-fire agreement in place, which created the context for rebuilding
What is needed?
– YMCA Gaza is committed to rebuild and to ensure both the required facilities and the mental health of its staff, volunteers, members and their families.
– There is an urgent need to repair the destroyed or damaged facilities, from simple cleaning and replacing doors to complete renovations and rebuilding of some of the areas.
– For those who are interested YMCA Gaza can also provide a detailed technical list with all the required expenses.
