which is the best organisation to donate money to? There are no marches near me, they would all take ££ to get to and I would rather I send money Palestine than give it to a rail company.

Palestinians have their own well funded aid organisation, UNWRA. They are the only 'refugees' who have this privilege in the world They are well funded by the UN. Palestinians are normally reliant on aid distributed by UNWRA although obviously a lot is stolen/given to by Hamas to pay for their terrorism against Israel. Also a lot goes to their private bank accounts and estates in Qatar etc. Hamas run Gaza and UNWRA has been heavily criticised for being a part of Hamas. Therefore the aid situation is very tricky. What goes to civilians is decided by Hamas and that seems to be not very much. While Gaza is run by a terrorist regime i would not donate any money to them. There are a huge amount of dodgy facebook fundraising groups asking for money on Facebook etc. These are scams as no one can get through aside from UNWRA/Hamas. I would donate when there is a regime change not to a terrorist state in the middle of a war.
