Half a Million Hot Meals/Water Fed to Starving Gaza

It is hard and dangerous getting food aid into starving Gaza. Still, Zakat Foundation relief teams inside Gaza have used your generous support to feed at least 493,450 hot meals, each with bottled water, directly to the starving Palestinian children, women, and men in Gaza in the past six months. Our Gaza aid teams have also risked life itself to get 6,710 food packages – each with 10-day essential food supplies – to desperate families in Gaza’s critically famished North.
