Massive destruction caused in Gaza by aerial bombardment

Gaza Crisis - Emergency Relief

01 Jan 2009

The Al Imdaad Foundation was the first South African Aid organisation to respond to war-torn Gaza after a massive wave of airstrikes were launched on the Gaza strip in late Dec 2008. The attacks resulted in many civilians being killed injuring hundreds more. Images from targeted areas showed dead and injured Palestinians, burning and destroyed buildings and scenes of panic and chaos on Gaza’s crowded streets. Reports from NGO’s in the region confirmed a figure of 400 dead, including women and children, and at least 1800 wounded. The attacks which came off the back of a six month truce provoked swift international reaction with many leaders calling for calm and an immediate ceasefire. However, continuous airstrikes led to a further deterioration of the humanitarian situation thereby prompting an immediate response by aid agencies. Being the first South African aid agency to reach the conflict ridden area, the Al Imdaad Foundation provided emergency relief items including medical supplies, fortified infant milk, canned food, blankets, mattresses and other necessary aid. These distributions were carried out by representatives from The Al Imdaad Foundation’s Jordanian office with a contingent from South Africa also supervising the distribution. During their stay in the region, the Al Imdaad team also met with the South African Ambassador in Jordan, Dr Boy Geldenhuys as well as the Ambassador to Egypt Mr Sonto Kudjoe. The efforts of the Al Imdaad Foundation ensured that more than 165 tons of medical supplies and food were successfully delivered to Gaza via the Egyptian border. A substantial amount of funding was also transferred to provide long term sustainable assistance to orphans and widows also allowing for investment into education. Our efforts continue to this day in trying to make a difference in the Gaza strip.
