"The five days of conflict in May 2023 caused death, injury, and destruction for residents of Gaza, many of whom have not yet begun to psychologically, physically or financially heal from their experiences in May 2021 and August 2022.
"This is not the only time our house was damaged. We survived many escalations. With almost every round, our house gets damaged. We simply cannot keep surviving this forever.
"In the days after a ceasefire was announced, the Palestine Red Crescent Society (PRCS) and the ICRC began responding to urgent needs. While communities held their breath to see if the agreement would hold, PRCS and ICRC teams assessed broken homes. Cash assistance and household items were provided to the most vulnerable. This helps them to cover immediate emergency needs and begin the process of rebuilding their lives."
