Event Countdown
of
Over the past 11 years Muslim Hands has been on an incredible journey with over 20,000 walkers across the UK, coming together, walking 5 miles and raising over £1 million for our various projects within Gaza.

This year we will be heading to 11 cities across the UK on a BIGGER scale, whilst bringing more families together to brave the cold and take on the 5 mile challenge!

This year the Gaza Winter Walk will be focusing on supporting the Al-Nasir Paediatric Hospital and providing much needed life-saving medical equipment such as incubators and ultrasound machines for new-born babies and children as well as supporting our psycho-social projects.

So join us with your friends and family and enjoy this fantastic event full of entertainment and delicious food – this is going to be incredible!

The Reality

Every child deserves to have a healthy start in life. But in Gaza, the violent conflict and on-going blockade means that new-born babies and children don’t have access to the medical care they desperately need – costing them their lives.
With the memories of war and witnessing loved ones killed, a generation of children in the Gaza strip are now on the brink of a mental health crisis.
• Gaza has higher than average rates of neonatal and maternal mortality
• Neonatal intensive care units have become overcrowded and maternal malnutrition means the rising rates of premature and low weight babies
• 95% of children in Gaza show deep psychological stress
So stand with us this winter, shoulder to shoulder to not only restore the hope and dignity of these children – but to save the lives of future generations in Gaza.
