NGOs Struggle To Deliver Aid To Gaza

Published on 12 January 2009

Aid supply to affected populations in Gaza is severely hampered due to logistical difficulties and challenges, aid agencies said. Insecurity continues to threaten aid delivery into Gaza despite measures such as humanitarian access points and the daily three- hour ceasefire. Meanwhile, the humanitarian situation in Gaza is grim. People are hungry, cold and lack access to electricity, heating or water, WFP spokesperson Robin Lodge said. WFP has distributed food to 96,000 people in Gaza to date.
