How WFP Brought Food and Hope to Gaza’s Battered Communities

A violent summer in Gaza left thousands of its residents homeless and in shelters. The two-month conflict destroyed homes, businesses and basic services. But one thing was working – WFP food distribution, the landmark vouchers and the e-card programme, which was launched in Palestine five years ago as a first in the Middle East. 


WFP’s mission in the West Bank and Gaza is to provide food assistance to vulnerable people and to work with local Palestinian authorities to strengthen safety nets and build the capacity of local institutions to anticipate and prepare for emergencies. in arabic?
