ACTNews, GAZA – Palestinian families living in new community shelter continues to increase. They are the Gazans who have lost their houses due to Israeli missile attacks.

The housing assistance from generous benefactors now accommodates about 125 Palestinian families. The apartment, which is located in Deir al Balah, Gaza, has an area of ​​1,500 square meters, equipped with five floors and 27 units of flat. Each unit is ​​more than 160 square meters wide, so it is large enough to accommodate several Gaza families.

“In addition, the ground floor of this apartment has an area ​​of up to 400 square meters. There is a playground in it. The children can play cheerfully and not be bored while living in the apartment," said Said Mukaffiy from ACT’s Global Humanity Response, Friday (6/4/2021).

There is another housing located on Alnaser Street, Gaza City that has been prepared by ACT. With 24 units of flat ready to use. “The people, who would stay at these two apartments, did not have to worry about the electricity and water because it had been adequately facilitated,” he added.

ACT also provides various household needs such as a stove, mattress, and cupboard to support the lives of the Gazans. 

Mukaffiy explained this housing assistance was an effort by ACT together with all generous benefactors to recover the condition of Palestine. The initial step taken is to provide shelter for families who have lost their homes.[]
