Time has already run out for many people and millions more are struggling to survive. The 2014 conflict in Gaza was catastrophic, killing 2,251 Palestinians and injuring another 11,436 people. A third are living with serious disabilities. The ongoing crisis has impacted every aspect of life for Palestinians, from the inability to access clean water and adequate healthcare to the daily struggle to earn a living or give children hope for a better future. More recently, lengthy power cuts have made it almost impossible for the population of Gaza to function, leaving schools, hospitals and homes plunged into darkness without electricity or power.
