Islamic Relief Palestine had started implementing the project for Ramadan 1438H – 2017.
The project aims to provide families, who are suffering from poverty, tough living condition, in addition to food insecurity, with basic food needs for the holy month. This activity will help the families challenge their unbearable daily conditions.
The main activity of Ramadan is the distribution of food basic commodities through voucher mechanism for more than 6700 poor families in Palestine / Gaza Strip.
Rami Mahani, Manager of humanitarian programme, said, “As in previous years, Islamic Relief is keen to alleviate the daily suffering of the poorest families in Gaza Strip in procuring essential food items through providing the food aid in Ramadan that will improve their food security. The beneficiaries of the projects are the hardest hit by the severe economic and social deterioration in the Gaza Strip for the last decades”.
He continued, “We make regular improvements to the criteria and processes we use in order to ensure the high quality and appropriateness of our services to the needs of project’s beneficiaries, as well as the service delivery in a way that respect their dignity. For the third year in a row, we distribute food vouchers to beneficiaries which guarantee their freedom in picking the food they need from distribution centers.”
