Voices from Gaza – “Here in the north you can no longer find food. Many don’t eat for two or three days, you’re lucky when you manage to have a meal”

In the Gaza Strip, particularly in the north, there is an alarming lack of food. The rate of malnutrition is growing at an unprecedented rate. According to Unicef, the Strip is on the verge of a “nutritional crisis” and, without a stop to the conflict, the situation will soon worsen, leading to “avoidable deaths” among children and to very serious health problems with lifelong repercussions. “Here in the north, 99% of families can’t find anything to eat,” an Oxfam assistant in the Strip says in an audio. The situation is catastrophic. “The markets are empty, the only thing you can find is rice but it’s too expensive. Nobody can buy it. I consider myself lucky because I can eat one meal a day. It’s better than nothing, given that many families go without eating for up to two or three days.”

The story is part of a series of testimonies collected by Oxfam operators and managers in Gaza who ilfattoquotidiano.it decided to publish. The goal is to have a first-person account from civilians in Gaza, those who are currently paying the highest price for the conflict.

THE PETITION – No significant humanitarian response can occur without an immediate ceasefire. This is why Oxfam has launched an urgent appeal to the Italian government and European leaders which can be joined on:
