As families in the war-torn Gaza Strip struggle to get by without essentials, CRS trucks containing food like tuna and urgently needed non-food items like blankets arrived in Gaza on Sunday.

Ninety-six pallets of humanitarian aid items passed through the border crossing at Kerem Shalom (in the south of Gaza). They were delivered to warehouses in Rafah and Middle Area in preparation for distributions that will take place this week.

An additional 54 pallets of aid items are in the logistics pipeline and are expected to be transported to North Gaza within the next 10 days. The items will help at least 1500 vulnerable families start to rebuild their lives following January’s violence.
