We remain committed to getting humanitarian aid to the people in Gaza who desperately need it and, as such, we have trebled our aid commitment for this financial year. The UK is providing £60 million in humanitarian assistance to support partners including the British Red Cross, UNICEF, the UN World Food Programme (WFP) and Egyptian Red Crescent Society (ERCS) to respond to critical food, fuel, water, health, shelter and security needs in Gaza.
