Like many families in the Gaza Strip, Ana’am was greatly impacted by the COVID-19 lockdown. Losing both her job and home, Ana’am struggles to provide food and basic necessities for her 5 children. Rather than living on the street, space was found for her and her children in an abandoned store front, though it does not have proper kitchen or bathroom facilities. These unhealthy and unsafe conditions exacerbate the situation for two of her children who suffer from various health concerns.
During these difficult times, Ana’am’s family relies on food assistance from the UN and relatives, but it is still not enough to cover their basic needs. Today, many families like Ana’am are struggling to put food on their tables, experiencing the most extreme conditions due to COVID related economic closures and lock downs.
Our partners in Gaza were directed to Ana’am as a family in desperate need and were provided with enough food for a month, along with 650 families who are beneficiaries of the ongoing KinderUSA Emergency Food Distribution. Each family receives enough food to get them through a month which includes dried legumes, canned meats, eggs, milk, and PPE.
Thank you to all of those who continue to support our efforts during this critical time in all of our lives, but particularly the lives of Palestinians living in Gaza. This virus knows no borders and now, Gaza is experiencing a 30% infection rate and facing another countrywide lockdown. We are appealing to all our donors to continue to support this project so we can reach more families. For $75 you can feed a family for one month. That is just $2.50 a day. Please make a donation today to help us expand our reach. Thank you.
