Muscat: The Sultanate of Oman has made a significant contribution of USD 1 million to support children in the State of Palestine.

This generous donation will have a crucial impact on UNICEF's efforts to provide essential aid to vulnerable children in the Gaza Strip. These children are facing multiple humanitarian crises, including ongoing bombardment, severe malnutrition, collapsed healthcare services, disrupted education, and deteriorating mental health. With the support of the Omani government, UNICEF will be able to strengthen its life-saving assistance to the children in Palestine.

Sumaira Chowdhury, UNICEF Representative in Oman, expressed gratitude to the Foreign Ministry of the Sultanate of Oman for their commitment to children. She emphasized that this generous donation will make a significant difference in the lives of children who are experiencing unprecedented hardships and need all the support they can get to survive.

Despite the immense challenges, UNICEF remains on the ground, prioritizing the delivery of safe drinking water, medical and educational supplies, support for healthcare workers, and providing nutritional supplements and vitamins to children and families in Gaza.

UNICEF has already transported critical emergency supplies to the Gaza Strip, including water pipes, vaccines, syringes, kits for acute watery diarrhea, obstetric surgical kits, blankets, tents, sleeping mats, feminine hygiene kits, and incubators for newborns. Additionally, UNICEF has provided humanitarian cash assistance to over 500,000 people.

In the West Bank, UNICEF continues to provide essential child protection services, including mental health and psychosocial support.

UNICEF consistently calls on global leaders to cease violence and ensure secure humanitarian access throughout the entire Gaza Strip.
