Gazans struggle to find food this Ramadan

Iftar is a sordid affair for some Gazans who have difficulty finding food due to the 10-year blockade on consumer goods imposed by the Israeli government.

The World Food Programme said Gazans face a food shortage brought about by a drop in funding for its aid programme.

In the Gaza Strip, which has been under an Israeli blockade for 10 years, the Iftar meal during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan is a subdued affair as families struggle to find enough food on the table to break their fast.  

The Gaza Strip is home to some two million people, more than three-quarters of whom the United Nations says depend on humanitarian aid.
