2023 International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People

This year, the Palestinian people are in urgent need of concrete expressions of solidarity from people around the world. Right now, as a war of unprecedented ferocity is waged in Gaza, Palestinians are experiencing one of the greatest collective traumas in their history. More than ever, global civil society must provide political support and humanitarian aid to stop the carnage in Gaza and the historic escalation in violence in the West Bank.

A message from Sandra Rasheed, Anera’s country director in Palestine:

Today, we mark the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, a day rooted in the anniversary of resolution 181, which once envisioned the partition of Palestine into two states: one Arab and one Jewish.

However, with the ongoing war in Gaza and escalating violence in the West Bank, that resolution now feels like an impossible dream.

Yet, as Anera, we persist in our life-saving interventions in Gaza. Our dedicated staff there risk their lives daily, providing meals, psychosocial support, and maintaining shelters to ease the struggles of fellow Palestinians facing displacement.

I ask you to stand in solidarity with Palestinians across the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and particularly in Gaza. It’s our collective responsibility to advocate for an end to hostilities and a lasting ceasefire.The Palestinian issue extends beyond borders, resonating with principles of justice and human rights.

Now, more than ever, we must raise our voices and take action to support the innocent men, women, and children of Palestine.

Together, let’s make a difference. Join us in advocating for peace and justice in Palestine.
