UNICEF is deeply concerned about the current violence in Gaza and Israel, and its impact on children.
Children are the most vulnerable during times of conflict. Children have already been killed and injured in Gaza. Schools in Israel close to the Gaza border have also been closed due to rocket fire.
You can donate to our children's emergency fund to help UNICEF's work for children in conflict in Gaza, Israel and across the world.
