PCRF Provides Food for Hundreds Under Quarantine in Gaza

On March 25, PCRF provided food to 210 people under quarantine in the Ghassan Kanafani and Marmarah schools in the southern Gaza town of Rafah.  These people, including children, have been kept in the two schools since crossing over the Rafah border from Egypt over the past two weeks.  They are not being provided with food by the local authorities, and some were complaining of hunger.  We contracted with two suppliers in Khan Younis - Sanabel Restaurant and Al Masa supermarket - who are following proper infection control procedures.  So far, 9 cases in Gaza have been identified with COVID-19.  Gaza has one of the most densely populated and fragile health systems in the world, putting the 2 million people there at risk.
