CHF has been working in the West Bank and Gaza since 1994. Since 2005 we have been blending our
expertise with the UN World Food Programme’s resources to provide assistance to the region’s poorest
families. The Gaza Strip has experienced intractable instability and conflict for years. CHF’s Food for
Work program focuses on the rehabilitation of vital services such as road maintenance, agricultural
activities and water system maintenance among others. Workers contribute 20 hours of work in
exchange for 120 kg of food including five basic staples. CHF’s work with the World Food Programme
has also expanded to cover the three main governorates of the West Bank.
The Food for Training program works to ensure that women are adequately represented among those
receiving food and aims to ensure that they are the prime recipients of food packages. They receive
training that focuses on health, nutrition and income generation activities which gives them the opportunity
to help their families and benefits the community as a whole.
Since 2004, over 210,000 Palestinians have benefited from food, workforce development and training
in the program, enabling them both to feed their families and also gain vocational skills essential to
finding employment that will allow them to direct their own lives.
