Construction of 100 Housing Units to Rehouse the Affected Palestinian Families in the Gaza Strip

Brief Description


Due to the Israeli bombardment and invasions of the Gaza Strip, and the demolishing of Palestinian homes, there has been a high need to reconstruct houses for people who lost their homes.

The project will contribute to reducing the suffering of over 700 of Palestinians who are now without homes as their houses have been totally destroyed. The project aims to provide alternate housing to 100 families in the north of the Gaza Strip in addition to a school, a mosque and physical infrastructure (roads, water, waste water networks and electricity networks).

The project will also alleviate poverty through the generation of around 50,000 workdays.

By the end of the project, UNDP would have established 100 dwellings that accommodate 100 families whose homes were demolished. It will also reduce the number of internally displaced people and generate urgently needed job opportunities for workers.
