Gaza hit hard by lack of UN aid

A shortage of donor funding has forced thousands of families in the Palestinian enclave to go without assistance.



    Thousands of families in Gaza are not receiving UN assistance because of a shortage of donor funds.

    The UN Relief and Works Agency said that unless it gets $5Om in the next few months, the emergency distribution of food aid will be cancelled completely.

    There are currently no UN officials at the food distribution centre to hear refugees' complaints.
