The construction of Lumbung Air Wakaf, built on 500 square meters area in the east of Jabalia, north Gaza, has reached 80 percent. The two-story building is already standing tall. Currently, ACT Palestine team in Gaza is preparing to install water tanks and other production equipment. Lumbung Air Wakaf will be completed in November.
