ACTNews, GAZA – Peaceful moment in Gaza after the ceasefire agreement is utilized by the Aksi Cepat Tanggap to massively implement humanitarian assistance, especially the Humanity Food Truck. The mobile kitchen has gone around the Om Al Nasr and Al Athatra areas in North Gaza to distribute meal packages since Sunday (5/23/2021).
The meals were directly distributed to the civilians’ mostly damaged houses in Gaza. Around 2,000 Gazans have received nutritious meal packages.
“The children were so happy when the ACT team came with the meal packages. They warmly welcomed us with smiles on their faces. Apart from meals, the team also provided drinking water since we know they still hardly afford clean water,” said Said Mukaffiy from ACT’s Global Humanity Response, Monday (5/24/2021).
According to Said, the meal distribution through Humanity Food Truck was the implementation of assistance from Indonesian Benefactors. “I want to say thank you to the Indonesian Benefactors who have allotted their money to help our brothers and sisters in Palestine,” said Mukaffiy.
Mukaffiy hopes that the meal distribution can be continued for the following days. Therefore, he encourages the benefactors to continue sending their best support to revive the Gazans' condition after the Israeli aggression through humanitarian actions.
Before the ceasefire was agreed, according to the data gathered by the ACT’s GHR from the Palestinian Ministry of Health and Ministry of Communication, the number of martyred Palestinians has reached 232, including 65 children and 35 women, with 1900 others were injured.
Besides that, the 11 days' aggression also completely destroyed 1,174 buildings, with 7,073 buildings being partly damaged. Meanwhile, most of the damaged buildings were the civilians’ houses.
