West Bank and Gaza Strip

While the West Bank and Gaza are constantly in the headlines, the attention does not mean that residents of this part of the world receive the support they need to build a strong future for their families. IRD's programs here are working to change that by improving roads, water systems, and schools, improving day-to-day life for Palestinians.
