The economic instability and subsequent poverty which wracked the country threatened food security for many Palestinian families. With the number of families losing breadwinners to death or imprisonment, the ability to earn an income was significantly reduced, leaving them dependent on assistance.
The ongoing conflict between Israel and Palestine resulted in limited access to food given the prevailing blockades which prohibited the freedom of movement.
Whilst working towards a sustainable intervention, Gift of the Givers recognised the need for immediate relief and so set to providing food through the delivery of food parcels and hot meals during the month of Ramadaan.
Gift of the Givers response includes: Food parcels and Iftar.
