Walking together

Over the past 15 years, more than 20,000 walkers across the UK have come together for the Gaza Winter Walks, braving the cold to raise over £1 million for various projects in Gaza.

Due to blockades placed on Gaza, Palestinians have no access to food, water, fuel or electricity. This blockade has also restricted the transit of essential emergency aid such as food, water and medicine. Prior to this escalation in conflict, 68 percent of Palestinians lived below the poverty line and had come to rely on humanitarian aid from organisations like ļֱ due to the severe restriction of essential goods into Gaza

By joining us for this year's Gaza Winter Walk, you will be helping to provide much needed support for these vulnerable people


Helping the victims of Gaza

Deadly attacks on Gaza have claimed the lives of over 20,000 Palestinians, 8,000 of those being children. Hospitals across the Gaza strip are under immense pressure to aid all the survivors that have been subject to airstrikes since October 7. Currently, over 50,000 people have been injured and over 2.3 million people have been driven from their homes.

Alhamdulillah, we have been able to partner with UNRWA, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, which has been instrumental in providing lifesaving treatment and nutrition to the people of Gaza over the years.
