ACTNews, GAZA – This March, the Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) team in Palestine finished renovating the house belonging to Mohammed Ismael Ibrahim Al-Hennawi in Jabalia, North Gaza.
Said Mukaffiy from ACT's Global Humanity Network team explained that the renovation took several months. Ismael’s house initially only had only a simple floor and unpainted walls. Parts of the house were riddled with holes. The condition of the house was worsened by the military attack on Gaza in 2021.
The ACT Palestine team also added pieces of furniture and appliances. They also install electricity in the house.
"This renovation is to help him endure the cold winter. We fixed the holes in the walls and roof so that rainwater and wind cannot get into the house,” reported Said.
ACT has renovated a number of residential buildings in Gaza as a result of the military attack in 2021 that destroyed thousands of houses.
