ACTNews, GAZA - The Great Return March protests continue along the Gaza-Israel border. The Palestinians are still voicing the demand for the return of their lands. The regular protests that have been held for two years were often met with violence by Israeli forces, leading to injuries and casualties.

Aksi Cepat Tanggap provides wheelchairs for the wounded. New wheelchairs were given to 60 Gazans who were physically disabled as a result of Israeli attacks. The wheelchair distribution took place from June 1 to 3.

"The recipients of the new wheelchairs were people who lost their legs due to the Great Return March protests and those who have chronic illnesses," Said Mukkafiy of the Global Humanity Response (GHR)  - ACT said.

ACT also provides medical assistance for the people of Gaza through the Indonesian clinic in Gaza. Thanks to the kindness of the donors, thousands of people in Gaza can get medical treatments, checkups, and free ambulance services. Every month, volunteers in Gaza provide reports on the activities at the clinic and patient visits. "We hope that we can continue assisting the people of Gaza," Said added. []
