UN Non-Governmental Organization in Gaza is likely to soon face hunger.
The United Nations World Food Programme says that nearly the entire population of 2 million in Gaza is in dire need of food assistance and warns that non-combatants are likely to soon face hunger.
The UN agency states that its bakeries are no longer operational due to fuel shortages, and only a quarter of grocery stores are open, selling a limited amount of food at exorbitant prices.
The fuel and electricity shortages mean that cooking is impossible for many. The global food program says fortunate individuals are eating canned food, but some are surviving on raw ingredients they can find, such as onions and eggplants.
Cindy McKeen, the executive director of the organization, said that currently there is no border crossing that can address the hunger-related needs. She called for the opening of another accessible point for aid.
