Aid is Getting Through from DEC Agencies

06/02/2009

DEC Member Agencies have reported no problems of the sort reported in the press on Friday 6th February.  The DEC is actively monitoring the situation.

International Non-governmental Organisations are obliged to provide summary information to all local authorities, and in this case to the Ministry of Social Affairs in Gaza regarding their distributions and also to Israel and the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank. 

The Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) Member Agencies continue to distribute aid directly to people affected in Gaza.
