Turkish Red Crescent sends 8.5 tons of medicine to Gaza
Kerem Kınık, head of Kızılay, told state-run Anadolu Agency that they have carried 42 pallets of medicine delivery to the blockaded Gaza Strip from the northern West Bank district of Nablus via Beit Hanoun border crossing.
Kınık went on to say that Kızılay officials had visited the Al-Amal Orphanage in Gaza, adding that the group provided the food and clothing to the orphans.
He also pointed on the support from the Netherlands Diyanet Foundation for the orphanage.
The Gaza Strip continues to groan under a decade-long Israeli blockade that has gutted the territory’s economy and deprived its two million inhabitants of many basic commodities, including food, fuel and medicine.
