World Central Kitchen on Tuesday delivered nearly 200 tons of food to communities in northern Gaza that arrived with the first sea aid shipment from Cyprus, it is stated in a statement by the NGO.

It is noted that the food that reached families that are on the spectrum of famine arrived with the first humanitarian cargo that approached the coast of Gaza in almost two decades. Together with local and international partners, WCK has delivered more than 39 million meals by land, sea and air to Palestinians in need.

«Today's delivery of rice, flour, pulses, vegetables and of proteins in families in the north, where access to aid is very limited, proves that desperately needed food (the residents) can be delivered by sea. In addition to the food that arrived on the Open Arms vessel, today's northbound convoy also carried ready meals,” it said.

It is added that for months WCK teams have been working non-stop to open this sea aid route to Gaza and have been supplying and loading food onto boats in Cyprus.

They are also reported to have built their own jetty in Gaza using rubble from bombed buildings to safely unload the cargo.

“WCK will eventually be able to deliver massive amounts of food daily to the shores of Gaza,” said José Andrés, founder of WCK. He adds that the NGO teams are currently preparing to send the second sea shipment, which will include food and heavy machinery that will speed up the unloading process.

Jose Andres called for a ceasefire and an opening as soon as possible. more land routes to ensure that Palestinians get the meals and water they need.

It is added that so far the NGO has sent more than 1,500 trucks but many more are needed to meet the urgent needs of communities in all of Gaza.
