ACTNews, GAZA —  Abu Ghazal’s family often eat once a day. They are one of the Palestinian underprivileged families who live in North Gaza. The severe economic crisis in Gaza had made Abu Ghazal unable to get a job to support his wife and four children. He is unemployed and relies on assistance.

Education for Ghazal’s children was only a dream. Abu Ghazal could not afford to send them to school. Limited income made them fail to pay for school fees or school supplies. Abu Ghazal’s children had attended school but they dropped out due to financial problems.

Now, a glimmer of hope for a better economy is approaching Ghazal’s family. He received living cost assistance from Sister Family Palestine-Indonesia program by Aksi Cepat Tanggap.

Alhamdulillah, I am very happy to get assistance from a great team. My children are very happy. This is the first assistance given to my family. I will pay for my children’s tuition fees,” said Abu Ghazal when he was visited by ACT Palestine in mid-March.

He was very grateful for this assistance because it came ahead of Ramadan. For the time being, he no longer relies on food assistance from neighbors. 

“Situation in Gaza is getting worse as a result of the blockade that has occurred. I hope benefactors provide us with monthly assistance. I am very happy because ACT is a big institution that provides support to the poor and carries out great programs in Gaza,” he added.

Sister Family Palestine-Indonesia tried to bring together Palestinian families in need with Indonesian families as benefactors. Profile of Palestinians Families would be conveyed to benefactors so they could find out more about Palestinian families who will be assisted.[]
