star this property answer text <p> </p><p>We are gravely concerned by the humanitarian situation in Gaza where the damage sustained in the recent conflict has been unprecedented. More than 100,000 people have been left homeless, the UN estimates that only 10% of the population receives clean water daily, and many people face power cuts of up to 20 hours a day. DFID works closely with the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Human Affairs (OCHA), which manages the process of collecting, analysing and publishing information about the humanitarian situation in Gaza. The latest situation reports are published here: <a href="http://www.ochaopt.org/" target="_blank">http://www.ochaopt.org/</a>. DFID will continue to work with partners on the ground to monitor the situation and adapt our response accordingly.</p><p> </p> more like this
