ACTNews, GAZA - Humanity Food Truck in Gaza is back in action. The mobile kitchen serves healthcare workers on duty at Al Awda Hospital, Bait Hanoun Hospital, Gaza Health Center Committee, Gaza Social Ministry, and Shohadaa Hospital.

Two thousand portions of food were distributed gradually on Saturday (4/4) and Sunday (4/5). The free meals were given to healthcare workers at hospitals, medical facilities that quarantine COVID-19 patients, and employees at the Gaza Social Ministry.

Andi Noor Faradiba from the Global Humanity Response (GHR) – Aksi Cepat Tanggap said, during the distribution, volunteers were only allowed to meet certain staff members of the hospitals, not the doctors, because they were treating COVID-19 patients and suspects.

"The ACT team also provided food to the Ministry of Social Affairs which also takes care of quarantined Covid-19 patients. The team was also not allowed to enter to prevent the spread of COVID-19," explained Faradiba.

Previously, this truck was sent from Israel through the Erez crossing. After 41 days of modification, the truck was finally ready to channel the generosity of Indonesian people to assist the people of Gaza.

In addition to helping healthcare workers, the Humanity Food Truck in Gaza will also distribute free meals for local Gazan residents in the next distributions. Humanity Food Trucks can produce 1,000 to 2,000 meal packages day and can easily distribute free meals to all governorates in the Gaza Strip.

Previously, to support the Palestinians’ need for food, ACT set up the Indonesian Public Kitchen that produced up to thousands of meals a day. The meals were distributed in schools, poor neighborhoods, and orphanages. ACT also provides staple food packages for the Palestinians through the Indonesia Humanitarian Center. []
