Israel and Gaza: A message for peace and compassion

Along with students around the world, the whole University of Wolverhampton Students’ Union team is deeply saddened by the conflict in the Middle East.

Our hope is for peace.

We share concerns over fear and uncertainty faced for those with loved ones in Israel and Palestine.

We may be affected in direct and indirect ways by this situation. Now is a time for care and support in our community, looking after each other, and helping those around us who are upset or fearful.

 If you or your family is struggling with the enormity of what's happening, whether you are directly affected or have been impacted by what you're seeing in the press or on social media, the Students’ Union has a range of support services.

How to support on-going humanitarian campaigns:

International humanitarian efforts are continuing in the conflict-ravaged region. You can find out more at:

- ActionAid emergency response fund 

- Doctors without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) provides medical care in Gaza and is focused on meeting immediate emergency needs there, including donating medical supplies.

- The International Committee of the Red Cross is a "neutral, independent humanitarian organisation" that responds to help people harmed by armed conflict and disasters in conflict zones.
