People of love project,

By Center for Freedom and justice

With Fund from Life Organization

Summary

On Monday 21st and Tuesday the 22th and Wednesday the 23rd of May 2018, Center for Freedom and Justice executed a food distribution project in Ramadan called “People of Love” which was funded by a French Organization called “Life”, in total 220 food boxes were distributed by Center for Freedom and Justice to families in 9 different villages in Hebron area, south of West Bank, Palestine. The villages are chooses due to the inhabitants constant pressure from the Israeli occupation and lack of basic rights like freedom of movement and the chance to develop their land and secure their own income. The boxes were distributed in the beginning of Ramadan, when the tradition of sharing meals with family and friends is strong and important in the Islamic culture.

Beneficiaries

On the 21th of May in total 50 families in Al-Fawar Camp and Yatta Area got food boxes. The main income for the inhabitants here are based on agriculture, but they are surrounded 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 22th of May we distributed food boxes to 80 families in Um Alkhair, Sussiya,Mofajara and Tawaniya Village 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.

On the 23rd of May in total 70 families in BeitUmmar, Jala and Jaba'a village got food boxes. The main income for the inhabitants here are based on agriculture, but they are surrounded by several Israeli settlements. The settlements is a constant threat to the inhabitants’ physical safety, freedom of movement and livelihoods. The farmersare pressured to stay away from their land due to attacks and harassment. This problem increases during planting and harvesting seasons.

Box content

 

One box will provide one family with basic food supplies for a month. 

The boxes, each one almost is 20 kg, were filled with olive oil, vegetarian oil, dates, cheese, sugar, rice, flour and jam, to a total worth of 200 NIS.

Recommendation

 

Many families of each targeted location were benefited from the food boxes but in some location such as Um Alkhairconsisted of 80 families living in tents in total and we had only 20 food boxes to distribute and Sussyia, Tawaniya and Mofaàra are the same thing, so we recommend in total to distribute 400 food boxes for these very poor locations next Ramadan Inchallah.
