Sheikh Thani Bin Abdullah Foundation for Humanitarian Services (RAF) has handed over some 15 housing units within the framework of the project “Houses of Gaza People” to a number of beneficiaries who lost their homes in recent Israeli aggression on Gaza Strip for a total cost of QR 1.5 million.

RAF said in a press release on Sunday that despite the blockade imposed on Gaza, the Foundation was able to implement this project in collaboration with its partners in Gaza Strip and deliver the houses to the beneficiaries during a ceremony attended by representatives of public and private bodies.

The Palestinian Minister of Public Works and Housing, Mofeed Al-Hasayneh, stressed the importance of this project, which was carried out with high ‘accuracy’ and ‘transparency’, praising Qatar’s Emir, government and people for their efforts in supporting and standing by their brothers in Palestine and their generous support, especially through reconstruction projects, according to the release.

At least 60% of the total number of destroyed residential houses have been completed, in addition to repairing more than 130,000 housing units which were damaged partially in cooperation with the relevant authorities and institutions, particularly the State of Qatar, the release quoted Al-Hasayneh as saying.

For his part, Director of Ambassadors of Compassion Department in RAF, expressed delight over delivering 15 housing units for beneficiaries in the Gaza Strip, noting that the project is a message of love and support from the Qatari people for the people of Gaza.
