Summary

On Friday the 2nd and Saturday the 3rd of June in total 102 food boxes were distributed by Center for Freedom and Justice to families in 7 different villages in Hebron area, south of West Bank, Palestine. The villages are chooses due to the inhabitants constant pressure from the Israeli occuation and lack of basic rights like freedom of movement and the chance to develop their land and secure their own income. The boxes were distrubuted in the beginning of Ramadan, when the tradition of sharing meals with family and friends is strong and important in the islamic culture.

Beneficaries

On the 2nd of June in total 63 families in Beit Ummar, Al Jaba and Jaba got food boxes. The main income for the inhabitants here are based on agriculture, but they are surrunded by several Israeli settlements. The settlements is a constant threat to the inhabitants physical safety, freedom of movement and livelihoods. The farmers are pressured to stay away from their land due to attacks and harassment. This problem increases during planting and harvesting seasons.

On the 3rd of June we distributed food boxes to 39 families in Tawana, Mofaára, Kalt el dabe and Sussiya, in theSouth Hebron Hills area. An area were the lack of water, electricity is a huge challenge for the inhabitants and were the infrastructure and possibilities to develop are almost absent due to the Israeli occupation. By living in Area C, under full Israeli control, all people suffer from lack of public services and infrastructure. Many of the families in these villages live in caves and tents.
