ACTNews, GAZA – The Indonesian Public Kitchen in Gaza continued its humanitarian endeavor by cooking meal packages for the people of Gaza. These meals were then distributed in mid-December to meet the food need of the people of Gaza.

"Insha Allah, these meal packages will keep them full and warm amid the freezing winter. Warm food prevents body temperature from dropping drastically below the normal temperature," said Said Mukaffiy from Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT)’s Global Humanity Response, Monday (12/20/2021).

As many as 930 Gazan residents received these meal packages. The meal distribution that involved the Humanity Food Truck covered the areas of Beit Lahia and Beit Hanoun in North Gaza to the Ash-Shati refugee camp in Gaza City.

"The recipients, especially the IDPs, were very grateful for the meal packages. Most of them are poor families without steady jobs. To meet their daily needs, they are very dependent on aid from the international community," Said explained. []
