ACTNews, GAZA - A massive truck drove through the Erez crossing on the northern border of Gaza Strip, Monday (3/2). The truck will later be modified into a mobile kitchen, a Humanity Food Truck operated by Aksi Cepat Tanggap.

ACT partner in Gaza, Rabah Bekhit, said that this truck will serve up to 1,000 beneficiaries per day. "There will be free, prepared meals for underprivileged families and orphans in Gaza," Rabah said.

Humanity Food Truck in Gaza is an effort to support the food security of the Palestinian people, especially in the Gaza strip. Rabah said the Gaza Strip is still experiencing economic crisis as a result of Israel's 13-year blockade, leading to poverty and inability to buy basic needs.

The recent escalation in Palestine has garnered attention from the international community. Andi Noor Faradiba from the Global Humanity Response (GHR) team - ACT said that the assistance for the Palestinians took various forms. "There is the food aid for the Al Aqsa safeguards and winter aid packages. We also provide free medical service every day for the Palestinians in Gaza through the Indonesian Medical Clinic. ACT also has an ambulance procurement program, "Faradiba said.

Previously, to provide food for the Palestinians, ACT set up an Indonesian Public Kitchen that produces up to thousands of meal packages a day. The food aid is distributed to schools, underprivileged residents, and homes for orphans.

ACT also distributes staple food packages for the Palestinian people through the Indonesia Humanitarian Center. ACT also has the Humanity Water Tank and Waqf Well to provide clean water for the Palestinians. []
