During the 2014 Gaza War, the main power plant is Gaza was damaged severely. Since then, the infrastructure crisis has grown exponentially. Gazans are impacted in three crucial areas: energy; water; and communications. Currently, Gazans typically only have electricity for 3-4 hours per day, leaving them in darkness for about 21 hours. Additionally, the lack of electricity and fuel disrupts any chance of normal routine or stability in a world so reliant on electricity.
