Amid intense fighting in Gaza, World Central Kitchen has so far provided more than 22 million meals, dispatched over 800 trucks to the area and set up 27 kitchens and over 750 clean cooking stoves, operating from its Field Kitchen in the city of Rafah. While getting aid into Gaza has been challenging, WCK’s Egypt team has dedicated trucks that are designed to set up a fully operational kitchen and start cooking for 1,845 people per day.
