TİKA Provides Palestinians with LED Systems

Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TİKA) has provided 200 Palestinian families in the Israeli-blockaded Gaza Strip with lighting systems.

Due to electricity shortage in Gaza, TİKA provided basic lighting LED systems to families who cannot afford owning electricity generators.

For around 10 years, the Gaza Strip, home of nearly two million people, has been witnessing power cuts for more than 12 hours on daily basis.

Since 2007, the Palestinian territory has groaned under a crippling Israeli blockade that has deprived its inhabitants of most basic commodities, including food, fuel, medicines and building supplies.
