Case Study

PALESTINE: Gaza-Repair Strategies

In response to the humanitarian crisis in Gaza which has left thousands of families living in sub-standard conditions, the UUSC together with the AFSC the Youth Bank and Architects for peace have launched an extensive analysis of the housing situation. Combining psycho-social assistance, practical support to needy families, and housing repairs, the goal of the project was to re-establish a sense of normalcy in the lives of people, especially young people, by engaging youth in the mental and physical reconstruction of their communities.
