People’s needs in Gaza during the current crisis are immense, ranging from medical supplies and food to fuel and winterization gear. Despite the growing challenges in delivering aid, Alight and our affiliate Questscope have been relentless in our mission to provide critical support. Emergency funds are crucial, and you can help.

A collaborative endeavor

From the onset, Alight and Questscope established a partnership with an alliance of trusted local organizations to channel direct funds and implement emergency response plans. This collaboration has enabled the efficient delivery of essential supplies and support to the people of Gaza.

Recent relief efforts

Over the past six months, Alight and Questscope have achieved several milestones in our relief efforts:
