The Gaza Strip is currently experiencing exceptional conditions after the spread of the Coronavirus among the population. This led to taking preventive measures to limit the spread of the virus, including imposing curfew. It is believed to be the most effective solution considering the severe overcrowding as the Gaza Strip is known as the most densely populated place on earth.
In the besieged Gaza Strip for 14 years now
80% of the population depends on external aid and 32% of the population lives under the extreme poverty line, which is set at less than 2 dollars a day per person, while unemployment rates reached 46%, the highest among youth.
In these difficult conditions, curfews and movement restrictions add thousands of new people to the lists of destitute people who are not even able to provide a loaf of bread for their families, as street vendors, café workers, drivers and others.
“My husband is sick; he suffers from a herniated disc in the back and has not worked for years. Some good people helped me until I was able to set up a booth in which I sell drinks on the road. Alhamdullelah we were able to meet our basic needs and do not need to beg help from people, but now and for the third day in a row, we do not even have a single loaf of bread, my neighbor sent me two loaves of bread yesterday, but her condition is not any better than mine. Her husband works as a hired driver on a taxi and he also hasn’t gone out to work for days. ” says Aisha from Gaza and a mother of five.
