In order to help address the increased poverty and food insecurity problems in the West Bank and Gaza,  USAID provides humanitarian support through the World Food Programme (WFP), while in Gaza the Palestinian Community Assistance Program provides support to Gaza’s most  vulnerable people.

USAID’s reconciliation programs promote peaceful coexistence among Israelis and Palestinians and improve mutual understanding and dialogue on issues of common concern.

USAID Crises and Conflict Management projects include:

  •  Procured and distributed food supplies and electronic food voucher cards through a partnership with WFP, to a total of 223,000 food-insecure Palestinians living under the deep poverty line in the West Bank and Gaza in 2012.
  • More than 5,000 households in Gaza received three rounds of essential, humanitarian non-food items. Over the past two years brought together more than 23,000 Israelis and Palestinians in conflict management and mitigation activities.
  • Supported activities for 11,000 children on democratic themes and the culture of non-violence.
