The first ITF solidarity shipment ready to depart Jordan for Gaza

A first cargo of medical aid sent by the ITF (International Transport Workers’ Federation) and its member unions has arrived in Gaza. The supplies have been delivered to UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency) and the Jordan Hashemite Charity Organization, whose support includes the running of a mobile hospital in Gaza.

This is the first shipment of medical aid purchased and sent from the ITF office in Amman, Jordan, as part of an ongoing relief appeal – see www.itfgazafund.org for how to get involved. More supplies will follow.
