ACTNews, GAZA – Global Qurban Aqiqah delivered delicious aqiqah dishes in Zitoon, Gaza. Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) team in Palestine distributed biryani rice and meat directly to residents there.

"They are happy to receive this dish because not every day they can eat this delicious food," said Firdaus Guritno from ACT's Global Humanity Response team, Friday (9/3/2021).

Aqiqah goats were slaughtered at one of the slaughterhouses in Gaza by following the advice of local authorities to minimize crowds.

The meat that has been cut into small pieces was brought to an Indonesian public kitchen in Gaza. There, the team cooked the meat into delicious dishes using the typical spices that Palestinians usually enjoy.

"The cooks from ACT pay attention to cleanliness. They always use masks and hairnets when cooking. Insha Allah, the food that we distribute is hygienic," explained Firdaus.

Food is one of the urgent needs for Palestinians in Gaza. The blockade for decades has left many residents out of work and unable to meet their family's food needs. The attack carried out by zionist Israel has also damaged various facilities that support the food sector in Palestine.

"In May, Israeli attack destroyed many shops dan food factories. Now, the Gazans face the threat of starvation," concluded Firdaus.[]
