With Covid-19 affecting the lives of people around the world, the people of Gaza were hit extremely hard with the population reaching close to 2 million people. Close contact is the way of life in that part of the world.
In the Gaza Strip, Palestinian refugees are relying on non-profits to meet their basic needs. Their right to food, a human right, is non-negotiable but is being neglected by all those who turn a blind eye to Gaza. Currently, more than 1.6 million people in Gaza are considered food insecure.
Together, we provided food parcels to Palestine refugee families -- every $100 was enough to provide food for a family of 7 for all of Ramadan!
A total of $82,624 was raised to fund food parcels for Palestinian refugee families in Gaza during Ramadan.
Efforts on the ground would not be possible without our implementing partner Middle East Children's Alliance (MECA). They have also upgraded the project by adding a whole chicken and vegetable for each food package!
