The boys and girls are between 1 and 14 years old. In addition to them, there are 16 caregivers, 3 unaccompanied children and 148 internally displaced persons on the SOS Children's Village premises.
Our staff in Gaza have told us about heavy bombardments in the vicinity of the SOS Children's Village. Despite repeated attempts, it has not been possible to obtain exit permits for the children and caregivers. If they are forced to leave the SOS Children's Village, there is no place where they will be safe.
SOS Children's Villages supports children, young people and families on all sides of conflicts. We stand up for every child worldwide, including in Israel and Palestine - regardless of nationality, skin color, religion or ethnicity.
