NEU called for an immediate and lasting ceasefire and for negotiations leading to a just and enduring peace in which Palestinian and Israeli children can live, learn and play together in peace and security.
Please support our Gaza emergency appeal
The NEU is working with Save the Children to provide food, water, toiletries and psychosocial support for the children of Gaza.
There is no longer any formal education or schooling for Gaza’s children of whom there were 625,000 before the war.
Over 350 schools have sustained damage, almost three quarters of Gaza’s education infrastructure, according to the United Nations. Many of those that remain have become shelters. More than 200 teachers and other education staff have been killed since 7 October and over 500 injured.
The psychosocial impact of this horrific war will have consequences for decades to come.
