The UAE, Qatar, Oman, Kuwait, and Bahrain have launched public donation and fundraising campaigns through several registered entities to provide humanitarian relief and aid to the Palestinian people impacted by the war in the Gaza Strip.

The humanitarian crisis in Gaza continued to worsen as hundreds of innocent civilians including women and children were killed in the bombing of Al-Ahli Baptist Hospital on Tuesday, October 17th.

The events of the week have led to a surge in fundraising and donations in the Gulf countries for the Palestinian people impacted.

Fundraising and donations are regulated within the Gulf Countries Council (GCC) and must be done through one of the licensed charities or humanitarian organizations.

Below is a list of registered and licensed charities and humanitarian organizations to donate to Gaza in the Gulf region:
