Behind the headlines, more good news from UNRWA


In a powerful press release yesterday on the launch of UNRWA's flash appeal, Karen Abu Zayd notes the suffering of civilians in Gaza but also has this ray of light:

"Tomorrow, we will resume our food distributions which were suspended on 18th December", said AbuZayd.

UNRWA suspended its daily distribution to 20,000 Gazans in need on 18 December citing a lack of infrastructure and a breakdown in supplies from Israel. The lull in fighting between Hamas and Israel officially ended on 19 December.
