This year, millions of vulnerable people in Gaza including children in need, the disabled, elderlY, face the very real risk of dying a preventable death due to extreme winter temperatures. Unlike previous years in Gaza where some sort of shelter was provided to the vulnerable in their homes, in light of the 2014 conflict, parents helplessly try to protect their children from the elements whilst forced to live outdoors as temperatures continue to drop and living conditions depreciate further as days go by.
In fact, as confirmed by the Gaza Ministry Of Health, 5 children died in January 2015 as they froze to death contracting life-threatening illnesses such as hypothermia, the youngest of them only 5 months old and the oldest around 11-12 years old. This is one of the largest death-tols of children losing their lives because of the cold in Gaza in recent memory
