Emergency supplies sent to 143 Gaza families

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Emergency supplies of rice and wheat will be distributed on 143 Gaza families by the Palestinian Ministry of Social Affairs and UNRWA, officials said Monday.

Packs consisting of 10 kilograms of rice and 30 kilograms of wheat will be distributed on Gazans across the Gaza Strip.

The director of the Social Security Department said that families living in the Gaza Strip will receive supplies “disregarding their living conditions, who they are or if they are refugees or non-refugees.”

However, Riyad al-Bitar added that families already receiving supplies from UNRWA, the World Food Programme, Oxfam, or coupons program would be excluded.

Al-Bitar added that families can receive the supplies by showing an ID card, a drivers license or a Palestinian passport.

A spokesman of the Ministry of Social Affairs highlighted that the goal of this campaign is to make it easier for families to receive supplies under the “exceptional” conditions in the Gaza Strip.
