Palestine: Gaza: Numbers In The Dark

21,000 children will lose the chance to enroll in kindergarten and summer camps. Some 80,000 children will suffer psychological problems from fear of darkness and nightmares. 200,000 households lost the source of electricity. Food stuff storage for the basic commodities (wheat, rice, etc) will not last for more than two weeks, and 170,000 households will loose source of cooking energy in one week. 120 tons of food and medication stored by some 7,000 organisation and establishments in Gaza, are dependent on refrigerators and are under risk of damage… more numbers in the dark from Gaza by Naseem.
