About Global Communities West Bank/Gaza
Global Communities has been working continuously in the West Bank and Gaza for the last 20 years, and we currently manage one of the largest humanitarian assistance and development portfolios in the West Bank and Gaza. We provide food assistance to many of the 60% food insecure population in West Bank and Gaza through the UN World Food Programme (WFP). We are also implementing the $100 million USAID Local Government and Infrastructure (LGI) program in the West Bank that has the dual impact of creating employment and raising the standard of living in vulnerable area while also supporting community participation and government responsiveness. In Gaza Global Communities, working through Mercy Corps and USAIDs Palestinian Community Assistance Program (PCAP), improves the lives of Gazans by providing social and economic relief and recovery activities to meet basic humanitarian needs and lay the foundations for long-term recovery. Through PCAP, we built technical and management capacity of local contractors to ensure a continued ability for emergency response, repairing and rehabilitating conflict-damaged homes, increasing food security for families in Gaza and encouraging self-sufficiency, and improving provision of basic services through community infrastructure projects. During the escalating conflict in the summer of 2014 we responded, as we did before during the 2008 2009 and 2012 conflicts, to the needs of the most vulnerable affected by the conflict in Gaza. We provided food assistance to internally displaced and vulnerable families, domestic and personal hygiene kits as well as other essential non-food items, shelter kids for homeless families, and psychosocial support for some of the 25,000 traumatized children in Gaza.
