Focus on Palestine

Living under occupation and a constant threat of violence, Palestinians have been robbed of nearly every basic human right. Food insecurity; poor water quality; limited access to healthcare; lack of education opportunities; high unemployment; and restricted movement are only a few of the many problems the people of Palestine are forced to face in their daily lives. 


Gaza has been described as an “open-air prison.” Years of restrictions on movement coupled with blockades have left nearly 2 million residents stuck with little hope of bettering their lives. Reports conclude that Gaza will soon become “unlivable” if this continues. The conflict has also led to one of the biggest refugee crises our world has faced. More than 7 million Palestinians have been displaced.


Our hope is to show the people of Palestine they have not been forgotten. Join us and support our brothers and sisters in their time of need. 

Project Spotlight

Women Can 2.0

People supported: 1,424

Start date: September 2020

Close date: November 2022


The Women Can project helped empower female heads of household so that they may provide for their families. The project targeted 237 women along with their family members – some of which were from the West Bank while others were from Gaza. It was designed to help them start or develop their businesses, increase their income within one year of receiving support from donors like you, and help them feel more aware and confident of their social and economic power. With your investment in this effort, IRUSA was able to help empower Palestinian women.

Islamic Relief’s Dedication to Palestine

Islamic Relief started working in Palestine in 1994 and soon after, Islamic Relief Palestine opened its office in 1998 so long-term development projects could be implemented and overseen by people in the field.

For decades, our legacy in the country has grown to help hundreds of thousands of people every year with programs that provide livelihood support for farmers, help vulnerable children, and more. With your continued support, IRUSA can provide more relief for people in need.

Here’s just a sampling of recent efforts for Palestinian families in need
