Save the Children NZ Appeal to Stop War on Children in Gaza

Save the Children New Zealand Launches an Appeal to Stop the War on Children

Save the Children New Zealand has launched an online petition urging the international community to act to bring an end to the conflict in Gaza.

As part of an international effort by Save the Children, we are calling on the United Nations to speak out against the use of explosive weapons in populated areas now and in the future, by all parties involved in the conflict in Gaza and Israel.

These weapons have brought devastating consequences for children and their use in populated areas must be stopped. As part of a lasting solution we are urging the UN to seek the lifting of the blockade of Gaza, which is causing severe hardship to children there.

The shocking number of children being killed, injured, or displaced in Gaza demands an unequivocal international response to stop the bloodshed, Save the Children warns.
