Poverty and injustice in Gaza: empowering women

Feb 04, 2013, 03:01 PM

The conflict in Gaza last November caused widespread destruction and devastation to homes, agricultural lands and infrastructure. The effects of trauma and shock endured by Palestinians during the week of intense bombing have emerged. In this podcast, Hala Gishawi from Christian Aid partner the Women’s Affairs Centre in Gaza, explains how the organisation is supporting women who experience poverty and injustice in their lives as a result of the Israeli occupation and the continued blockade of Gaza. Christian Aid has launched an appeal to help the people of Gaza and across the Middle East who are suffering as a result of violent conflict.
