Syrian people send aid trucks to Gaza

In a few hours, 11 lorries will leave Damascus, carrying aid for Gaza.


The Red Cresent is sending the trucks, after volunteers collected donations from people across Syria. They are carrying medical supplies and food.

They will leave Syria and enter Jordan, on their way to Gaza at 10am on Saturday. If you want to follow their progress, or donate, you can read their live Twitter feed here.

We owe the people in these photos a debt of gratitude. Both the volunteers, for giving their time – and the people who donated, for giving their money.


There are more photos here. Thanks Anas.
