    WFP Trucks Deliver Food Assistance To Gaza Via Rafah Crossing

    For the first time since the blockade of Egypt’s Rafah crossing started in 2007, a WFP humanitarian convoy successfully crossed from Egypt into the Gaza Strip on Wednesday, Aug. 27.  “The trucks were carrying food parcels to feed 150 thousand people for more than five days,” Sune Kent of WFP Palestine stated, adding “it’s essential for the humanitarian community and for WFP to be able to continue to move food assistance in, through the Rafah corridor.”

    WFP Humanitarian Convoy Delivers Food to Gaza through Egypt's Rafah Crossing (For the Media)

    GAZA – For the first time since 2007, a humanitarian convoy of the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) successfully crossed from Egypt into the Gaza Strip today, carrying enough food to feed around 150,000 people for five days. After a seven-hour drive from Alexandria – where the food was procured – across the Sinai Peninsula, WFP’s trucks arrived at the Rafah crossing. The convoy of 18 trucks carried 15,600 food parcels – part of a total batch of 25,000 food parcels. The parcels include ready-to-eat food  such as canned meat, canned beans, tea and dates. A second convoy with the remaining parcels is expected to cross into Gaza in the next few days. This is the first time that WFP has used the Rafah crossing point since the start of the Gaza blockade in 2007.
