Message from Dr Saed Saleh our Gaza Office Manager: salam
“The situation on the ground is moving from bad to worse and there is no sign of seize fire or truce . Last night was the most horrible night where the Israeli tanks started to fire on the civilian houses especially in the northern and middle of Gaza. So far the number of Gazans killed are more than 150 and the number of casualties are more than 700 the majority are from children and women. Due to the intensive missile attacks near to Muslim Hands-Palestine office , the office was affected where the windows were completely destroyed and the furniture is partially destroyed .
The electricity is intermittent and that has its implication on the water supply as the Gazans suffer from the frequent water cut. The farmers couldn’t access their farms and that will cause food shortage in the local market in two or three weeks time. The Gazans who live close to boarders continued to evacuated their houses and moved to the UN schools and that lead to the need to distribute food and hygine kitt and baby milk to the refugees. Muslim Hands distributed medicine and medical disposables to the Gaza hospitals.
That costs about 14,000 USD. Currently the medical items needed are not available in the local market. Therefore, we coordinated with the Arab Doctors Union in Egypt to buy the items from Egypt. We gave order to buy medical items cost 40,000 USD. That will take from 3-7 days
