JOIN US IN CALLING ON ALL STATES TO TAKE PREVENTIVE ACTION TO PROTECT CIVILIANS IN RAFAH AND DEMAND AN IMMEDIATE CEASEFIRE

We call on all States to act now to protect civilians and prevent atrocity crimes in Rafah. The Government of Israel must abide by the prohibition of forcible transfer and deportation of civilians under international humanitarian law and provide civilians with essential necessities for survival. Now more than ever we need an immediate, definitive ceasefire, implemented by warring parties

We are also sending a clear message to #StopSendingArms to protect civilians amid a humanitarian catastrophe in Gaza. How many more innocent lives need to be lost before world leaders take action and agree on a definitive ceasefire

Join our calls to Stop The War On Children by signing our petition.

Israeli forces issued relocation orders for civilians in eastern Rafah to move to the so-called ‘humanitarian zone’ in Al-Mawasi, while urging them not to go to Gaza City or Wadi Gaza area. There has been no coordination between the Israeli authorities and aid agencies prior to the reported expansion of the ‘humanitarian zone'.  

If the Government of Israel continues to expand its military operations in Rafah and displace the people in the area, the consequences will be catastrophic. Children are always the first to suffer in any conflict and they are paying the highest price for a conflict that they have no part in. 

EVERY WAR IS A WAR AGAINST CHILDREN. IF WE DON’T ACT NOW, HISTORY WILL JUDGE US ALL.

The killing and maiming of children, abduction, and the use of schools and hospitals as battlegrounds, are grave violations, and those responsible must be held to account for their actions. 

In Gaza, essential resources such as water, food, fuel, and medical supplies are running out due to the siege. Children who survive the ongoing bombardment and ground operations are now at risk of dying from dehydration, starvation and disease.

Despite these spiralling needs, only a small fraction of the aid needed is getting to children. 

The weaponization of aid must stop and every effort must be made to ensure children and civilians receive humanitarian relief immediately. 

We are calling on the actors on the ground, all Heads of State and the UN Security Council to prioritize the preservation of human life above all else. This is a humanitarian catastrophe with unimaginable and unnecessary suffering. We urgently call for an immediate ceasefire to ensure that all children can be protected and to allow for a massive scale-up in humanitarian aid supplies and personnel needed to deliver it. 

Children must be protected. Stop the war on children.

Together, we can protect children from the horrors of this conflict. Stand in unity with the hundreds of thousands who have already taken action and sign the petition now

ACT NOW AND HELP PROTECT CHILDREN LIVING IN CONFLICT
