When Save the Children and international relief experts created the first-ever Conflict Protection Scorecard in 2003, the Scorecard ranked the West Bank and Gaza as the 15th most dangerous place in the world for children and women – ahead of Iraq and such notoriously lawless places as Somalia. The violence and political instability in the West Bank and Gaza impact children and women the most. According to the World Bank, 70 percent of Palestinian families live below the poverty level; half also rely on donated food for their daily needs. Children have witnessed violence and death, often cannot interact with other children because of blockades and curfews, have had their education repeatedly disrupted and are at greater risk of malnutrition.
