GAZA, PALESTINE May 5, 2022 — Baitulmaal, a Dallas-based international humanitarian nonprofit, delivered 625 food packages that provided 180,000 meals for 4,000 Palestinians in the Gaza Strip during Ramadan.
The packages were distributed in Khan Younis, Rafah, Gaza, and North Gaza governorates, where a majority of residents are living in poverty with little to no income sources. Many of the families have more than five members and include widows, orphans, disabled and elderly persons, according to Baitulmaal program director Elizabeth Sohail.
“Despite their circumstances, the people of Gaza look forward to Ramadan with so much hope,” Sohail said. “The smile on their faces when they receive the food packages is priceless.”
Baitulmaal delivered approximately 4 million meals to those in need around the world this past Ramadan. The charity also provides food, water, healthcare and other humanitarian aid to people in Palestine.
