ACTNews, GAZA STRIP – Some areas in Palestine are still dealing with the cold winter temperatures next Ramadan. Although the peak of winter has passed last January, the low temperatures still linger, posing a threat to the poor families in Gaza who live in inadequate housing.
To warm them this Ramadan, Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) handed over assistance from generous donors to the impoverished residents in the Gaza Strip on March 26 and 27. The winter aid consists of foodstuff packages, winter clothing, and gas-fueled room heaters that are more efficient and easier to use compared to the electric ones.
Said Mukaffiy from Global Humanity Network – Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) explained that this assistance reached 3,000 beneficiaries across all Gazan governorates, including Moasy Region in Rafah, Hamed Region and Naher Al-Barad in Khan Younis, Al-Zahra and Al-Sabra in the Gaza City, and Johor Al-Deek in Middle Area.
“Winter has not ended in Palestine. This Ramadan, millions of Palestinians are going to spend this Ramadan in freezing cold. Also, they have to deal with military attacks,” reported Said, Tuesday (3/29/2022).
The assistance from the donors will be able to strengthen Palestinian families this Ramadan. Said asks the community to continue assisting Palestinian families in need.
