ACTNews, JABALIA - Global Qurban – ACT distributed aqiqah dishes to families in Gaza through the Global Qurban – Aqiqah program. Packages of aqiqah dishes were distributed to the internally displaced at Camp Jabalia and Nazla in North Gaza on Thursday (2/4/2021). A total of 154 people benefitted from this distribution.
Said Mukaffiy from Global Humanity Response - ACT explained that one lamb was slaughtered and cooked into local typical dishes. The packages of rice and lamb were distributed to the orphans. The aqiqah sacrifice was donated by a generous Indonesian family.
Said also explained that Jabalia and Nazla are among Gaza’s poorest areas. Therefore, ACT collaborated with Global Qurban to provide food for the economically underprivileged in this area.
“In 2014 when Israel bombarded this area, dozens of houses were destroyed, more than 250 others were heavily damaged. This region has a very high unemployment rate, over 90 percent. The internally displaced depend on assistance provided by private institutions and donors from inside and outside the country," added Said.
