Gift of the Givers sets up the first ever “open market” for people to do their Ramadan “shopping” in Gaza. Vouchers were given to 600 families in Rafah and Khan Younis and they could choose whatever food items they required in a very dignified manner.
This was the first ever event of its kind creating much excitement in Gaza with all the local media covering the event.
The Gift of the Givers is the largest disaster response NGO of African origin on the African continent, under the guidance of Dr. Imtiaz Sooliman.
