Ramadan appeal for Gaza.
UNRWA - The United Nations Relief and Works Agency continues to assist the refugees in Gaza. They are still living under very difficult conditions in the aftermath of the three week long war at the end of 2008 and the beginning of 2009. Cement and other building materials are still not allowed into Gaza. Large areas remain in ruins. The blockade of Gaza that has been going on since June 2007 has devastated the economy and made more than a million people dependent on humanitarian aid.
