Based on our awareness of the importance of standing hand in hand with all official and popular authorities in these exceptional circumstances that Palestine, the region, and the world are going through as a result of the outbreak of the “Corona” virus, we have sought Sinokrot Holding since the first day of the emergence of the Coronavirus pandemic, and we were proactive to extend a helping hand for poor and needy families because we believe that poverty is the worst weapon of mass destruction. We have worked in two directions, the first direction is a relief, as we cooperated with the Ministry of Jerusalem Affairs, Ramallah and Al-Bireh Governorate, Bethlehem Governorate, Jericho Governorate, Al Anwar, and the Popular Committees in the regions in (14) governorates in the West Bank and Gaza Strip to provide food parcels worth 350,000 NIS, including providing thousands of food parcels to children in all Palestinian governorates in the West Bank, including Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip, through the Baraem Al-Khair campaign. The second direction is health.
