Over the last month, the crisis in Gaza

0:00:020:00:04

has captured the world's attention.

0:00:040:00:07

Military conflict has been taking a devastating toll

0:00:070:00:10

on a densely populated area.

0:00:100:00:12

So tens of thousands of people have nowhere to live

0:00:140:00:17

and nowhere else to go.

0:00:170:00:18

The conflict means that the people of Gaza are in great need.

0:00:210:00:25

Thousands of exhausted families are living in temporary shelters,

0:00:280:00:33

facing a very uncertain future.

0:00:330:00:35

The DEC estimates over a million people don't even have access

0:00:370:00:40

to enough clean water.

0:00:400:00:42

These people desperately need your help.

0:00:430:00:46

That's why the Disasters Emergency Committee, or DEC,

0:00:470:00:50

an umbrella organisation that unites 13 UK humanitarian aid agencies,

0:00:500:00:55

has launched an emergency appeal.

0:00:550:00:58

DEC members and their partners are already on the ground,

0:00:580:01:02

but to help the vast numbers of people affected,

0:01:020:01:04

they need your donation.

0:01:040:01:05

Families are grieving over the many dead.

0:01:080:01:11

Thousands of people have been injured.

0:01:110:01:14

So providing urgent medical attention is crucial.

0:01:140:01:16

Already overstretched medical services are at breaking point.

0:01:180:01:23

Help from the outside is required right now for the sick and injured,

0:01:230:01:26

and to bring relief to the displaced.

0:01:260:01:29

Delivering humanitarian aid in areas of conflict is difficult,

0:01:290:01:33

but the member agencies of the DEC work with experienced local partners

0:01:330:01:37

to ensure that aid reaches those who so desperately need it.

0:01:370:01:41

£25 can buy 150 bandages.

0:01:410:01:45

£50 can feed five families for a day.

0:01:450:01:49

£100 can provide an emergency shelter kit and blankets for one family.

0:01:500:01:55

This is an urgent humanitarian crisis,

0:01:550:01:58

so the DEC needs us to act now.

0:01:580:02:01

Please help if you can.

0:02:010:02:04

Thank you.
