The Christian Blind Mission has provided DanChurchAid with USD 160,000 to provide lifesaving food and hygiene support to vulnerable populations, focusing on people with disabilities, that have sought protection and shelter in schools around the Gaza strip.
There are urgent and overwhelming humanitarian needs in Gaza arising from the Israeli ‘Operation Protective Edge” launched on 7th July.
Due to the rapidly increasing number of Internally Displaced People, DCA provides basic food packages and hygiene kits among the most vulnerable households that are displaced and significantly affected by the Israeli operation in Gaza.
DCA’s partner in the project is the Jabalia Rehabilitation Society (JRS).
