Qatar has began to disburse the latest installment of financial grants to 100,000 needy Palestinian families in the Gaza Strip.

The Committee for the Reconstruction of Gaza affiliated with Qatar’s Foreign Ministry in a statement released on Tuesday October 6, 2020, said that each family will receive $100.

“The process will take into account the measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus to ensure the safety of the beneficiaries,” it added.

The Palestinians queued up at post offices in the impoverished strip to receive their payments.

Poverty and unemployment in the blockaded territory has risen to unprecedented levels, and the situation is likely to worsen in light of the pandemic.

The oil-rich nation of Qatar has become a major donor to Palestinians. It is executing a number of health and education projects in Gaza, including the Al Fakhoora program to provide the young with education opportunities.
