The humanitarian crisis in Gaza that has been under Israeli blockade since 2006 is still continuing. The people of Gaza, who are subject to a systematic genocide, are still highly dependent on humanitarian aid from other countries. After succeeding in placing Gaza on the world agenda, IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation is continuing its aid projects in the region. Following the recent Israeli attack, IHH distributed wheelchairs, food, cash and hot meals to those affected.
400 Palestinians benefitted from the wheelchairs while 196 needy families benefitted from the food aid. Daily hot meals prepared for 300 people in the Mavi Marmara Martyrs Soup Kitchen are distributed to the people in need.
In the recent attack on Gaza carried out by the Israeli military, 34 people including 8 children and 3 women lost their lives, another 113 people were injured and the homes of 22 families were destroyed.
