IDP camp in an UNRWA school in Beit Hanoun, where about 1,500 people, including 350 children live. Poor hygiene, no electricity or running water. On average 50 people per room.
After 50 days of "protective edge" operation started July 8, 2014, a cease-fire was declared on August 26 in Gaza. In addition to the material destruction, the death toll is particularly heavy with more than 2,000 casualties, including about a quarter of children, and more than 10,000 wounded. Medical needs remain very high, especially in terms of postoperative care, rehabilitation and mental health. MSF supports the burn unit of Al-Shifa Hospital and runs a clinic postoperative care in central Gaza.
