    Oxfam is not a human rights organization, and they may very well concern themselves with Palestinians in Arab countries. Oxfam International is a confederation of 14 organizations working with over 3,000 partners in 100 countries to find solutions to poverty and injustice. But they will have a particular interest in Palestinians in Gaza, because nowhere else in the world is a population of 1.4 million people being treated as inhumanly as the Gazan population. Israel claims it allows 80 trucks of aid daily to enter Gaza. The UN World Food Program claims a population of 1.4 million requires 400 trucks a day of just food to meet basic nutritional needs. More than 30% of Gazans are without clean water. More than 80% of the population depends on meager trickle of international aid that Israel permits to enter Gaza. Medical supplies are almost non-existent: Nurses are forced to use plastic bottles to transfer blood to IV bags.
