During these critical times, Rizq stands firmly committed to assisting the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip.
Our primary goal is to raise funds and provide humanitarian aid to as many people as possible. Operationally, we are coordinating with organizations, such as Gazze Destek, working in Gaza for efficient distribution of aid. Through these partners we are procuring both food and non-food supplies locally from areas in and around Gaza. Focus is on procuring goods and supplies that are needed the most as per on ground information we receive through our partners.
Rizq will be collaborating with the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) to send all in kind supplies we collect from Pakistan to Gaza.
This intensifying war in the region is causing severe breaches of international humanitarian law, leading to a dire humanitarian crisis. The blockade imposed on Gaza and the lack of secure humanitarian corridors have left its population, nearly 2.2 million strong, without electricity, clean water, communication, food, healthcare, and basic necessities. This situation is even more critical now.
We also remind the world that in 2018, the UN Security Council unanimously passed the historic Resolution 2417, which unequivocally condemns the use of hunger as a weapon of war.
Hence, Rizq urgently calls for the following actions:
We urge local authorities, governmental bodies, business communities, media, and civil society to join us in advocating against this injustice. At the same time, we also urge everyone to donate generously to any credible organization that is working towards providing immediate relief to people in Gaza. Our collective effort is essential to safeguard human lives and provide the necessary support and protection to the people of Gaza, who are facing the brunt of this calamity.
