Urgent appeal for donations to support families in Gaza.
WONDERBAG FOUNDATION LAUNCHES URGENT FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN TO AID CRISIS IN GAZA
Cairo 16/01/2024 - The dire humanitarian crisis unfolding in Gaza has reached unprecedented levels, leaving the population without access to basic necessities such as food, water, cooking fuel, electricity, and secure shelter. A World Central Kitchen (WCK) team member, with 19 years of experience in some of the world’s worst disaster zones, describes the current situation as unparalleled.
The overwhelming reality of death and despair in Gaza, coupled with the highest-ever recorded levels of food insecurity, has left communities besieged and the population trapped on the verge of starvation, teetering on the brink of annihilation. Shockingly, four out of five people suffering from famine globally are found in Gaza, highlighting the urgent need for immediate intervention.
WCK is a renowned humanitarian organisation that provides meals to survivors of natural and man-made disasters worldwide. On December 25, 2023, WCK reached out to Sarah Collins, CEO of the Wonderbag Foundation (NPO) for urgent assistance. Recognising the urgency of the situation, Sarah Collins swiftly mobilised resources and expertise to address the critical needs of the people of Gaza. She and her teams were in Cairo, Egypt within days.
Wonderbag’s innovative approach involves manufacturing Wonderbags of various capacities (12, 60, and 150 litres) in Cairo, Egypt. These heat retention Wonderbags can continue to cook food for up to 10 hours, once brought to the boil. The prepared meals, while they cook, will then be transported by trucks throughout Gaza, providing a sustainable solution to the immediate food crisis. The Wonderbag Foundation is now calling on the global community to support their mission to scale-up women-led businesses in both Cairo and Gaza. These businesses not only contribute to the local economy but also empower women who are in desperate need of livelihoods, and ultimately bring much needed help to the communities of Gaza. Sarah Collins intentionally selected small women-run businesses over large industrial manufacturers to prioritise uplifting all women in need while ensuring a swift response to the crisis.
All funds raised through this campaign will be dedicated to serving the communities of Gaza, providing them with essential resources and support. Each donation, regardless of size, plays a crucial role in making a difference and restoring dignity to the people of Gaza, offering them access to hot nutritional food.
