Gaza Ramadan Appeal 2018

The holy month of Ramadan is due to begin on 15th May 2018. This year Welfare Association will be distributing nutritional fresh food parcels to hundreds of impoverished families in Gaza each week for 5 weeks during Ramadan. These families are struggling to meet their basic needs, the food packs will enable them to plan and prepare their meals together throughout Ramadan.

 The fresh food items will be provided by local farmers who will also be supported. This project will enable these farmers to generate an income in order to replant their crops for the coming seasons and sustain their livelihoods.

One of the beneficiaries from last year’s project, Fadi, told us: “The distribution of parcels came very early, we received this parcel on the third day of Ramadan. It came at exactly the right time. We had almost nothing to eat. We were very happy with it, especially my children.”

This innovative approach provides a double benefit during Ramadan, by working with 130 small farmers and by supporting 1000 vulnerable families living in poverty.

Through this project, Welfare Association will be supporting some of the poorest families living in the most marginalised areas of Gaza, giving priority to families supporting orphans and/or with disabled children.

Please donate generously so we can support even more families this year.
