The war in the Gaza Strip has persisted for several months. Social observers are alarmed that every 10 minutes, one Palestinian child dies in Gaza. Palestinian-descendant models Gigi and Bella Hadid decided to help. They have donated one million dollars to aid Palestine.

The tense relations between Palestine and Israel have continued for years. The escalation occurred at the end of October 2023, during the Supernova festival, when Hamas attacked people attending the event. Israel responded with full force, leading to a significant escalation of the conflict. Currently, every 10 minutes in the Gaza Strip, one child dies - some from bombing attacks, others due to hunger. Israel's blockade of humanitarian aid transports causes food to rot at the borders of the Gaza Strip.

Gigi and Bella Hadid aid Palestine

Models Gigi and Bella Hadid are known worldwide. Their father, Mohamed Anwar Hadid, a real estate magnate, is Palestinian, and they have supported Palestine from the beginning. Known from the covers of major fashion magazines and runways of the most famous designers, the sisters decided to join forces to assist Palestinians.

Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid donated one million dollars to four humanitarian organizations focused on helping children and families affected by the war in the Gaza Strip. The famous sisters chose the organizations Heal Palestine, Palestine Children's Relief Fund, World Central Kitchen, and United Nations Relief and Works Agency. Each organization will receive $250,000.

Bella Hadid defends Palestine

Bella Hadid wrote on Instagram: "A Palestinian girl on the cover of Vogue. The joy it brings me to say that….I won’t stop talking about the systematic oppression, pain and humility that Palestinians face on a regular basis. With only love in my heart and an open mind to educate myself and learn more every day…. No matter what. I Love You."

Bella's younger sister, Gigi Hadid, has publicly supported Palestine multiple times. She simultaneously expressed sympathy for everyone affected by the war in the Gaza Strip.
