During the 50 day war that took place in Gaza last summer, an estimated 100,000 homes were destroyed.
Many families left Gaza’s cities and headed for the relative safety of rural areas, which then triggered the need for accommodation and emergency shelter.
After months of negotiations, ShelterBox is now able to send 500 boxes to the territory and the first batch of 250 are leaving Cornwall today.
