Occupied Palestinian Territory - OPT Humanitarian Action
August 2022

This 7 months project aims to rehabilitate and repair shelters to meet shelter minimum standards and assist vulnerable households exposed to weather extremes and protection concerns in the Gaza strip. This will be done with the support of Unlimited Friend’s Association for Social Development (UFA) and 3 Community-based Protection Committees (CBPCs), through implementing a cash-based winterization/summerization assistance and shelter rehabilitation for most affected households. This response will be combined with the distribution of urgent NFIs based on HHs’ needs. More specifically, the proposed intervention aims to support 100 vulnerable households living in damaged and/or substandard shelters with an average of $2800 and 38 vulnerable households exposed to weather extremes and protection concerns with an average $915– especially those affected by the May-2021 escalations.
