ACTNews, GAZA – Aid for the reconstruction of Palestine following Israel's attack on Gaza last May continues to increase. One of the measures implemented is the renovation of houses damaged by the attacks in Gaza, including Husam Nabeel's house. The Israeli attack damaged a simple home in the village of Al-Badaweyya in North Gaza.

Several large holes can be found on several sides of Husam's house. It allows the winter winds to easily enter Husam's home, which has seven members of the family.

ACT has been working on Husam's house since December 2021. ACT did this to help Husam and his family get through the winter more easily.

According to Mukaffiy of ACT's Global Humanity Response team, ACT Palestine renovated the entire Husam house, including the living room, the bedroom, and the kitchen.

"Alhamdulillah, ACT Palestine completed the reconstruction process in mid-January. We replaced the perforated walls and roof, painted the previously dull and moldy walls, and installed ceramic tiles on the floor," said Mukaffiy, Wednesday (2/2/2022).

Husam was also extremely grateful to the ACT team and Indonesian benefactors for their assistance. He and his entire family admit that they can live more safely and no longer have to worry about shivering in the cold during the winter.

"Thank you, Indonesians, for your unwavering support in the fight for Palestinian lives, especially in this cold weather. May your life be abundantly blessed," Husam stated.

During the 11-day Israeli offensive last May, the attack damaged 16,800 Gaza residents' houses, and 1,800 of them were severely damaged and unfit for human habitation. []
