Due to the Israeli blockade, the Palestinian people are living under tough economic conditions. IHH aims to lighten some of their troubles for at least one month. So far they have distributed 6,500 aid packages to orphans, needy families, neighbouring humanitarian relief foundations and zakat committees surrounding the region.

Additionally, IHH Gaza Representative began the distribution of warm iftar food. Throughout Ramadan, 6,500 families will receive warm food each day.

The blockade continues
