Emergency blanket distribution

The beginning of January saw a strong storm “Huda” hitting Gaza. This brought heavy showers and cold temperature over Gaza, resulting in 4 deaths.

PARCIC decided to distribute 1,060 blankets to those who had been living in a temporary shelter without appropriate and enough basic living items in the areas that were severely damaged since the Israeli attacks.

With support of Palestinian Medical Relief Society, we delivered the blankets in Khuza, East Shuja’aia and Beit Hanoun.
