Statement from MECA on the World Central Kitchen Killings

A statement from Middle East Children’s Alliance (MECA), our partner in the Grassroots to Gaza Aid Campaign, on the killing of their colleagues from 
World Central Kitchen.

We are devasted by Israel’s horrific attack that killed seven World Central Kitchen aid workers in Gaza this week. MECA had the pleasure of working side by side with many of them over the last six months to deliver food parcels to displaced families and to set up solar-powered community kitchens that provide hot, nutritious meals. 

We mourn the loss of each one of them—a loss for the world and especially for the people in Gaza who relied on the food they delivered with care and respect. We will miss them and extend our sympathy to all who knew and loved them.

Israel killed these dedicated workers with airstrikes on their clearly marked cars, making it clear, once again, that no place and no one is safe in Gaza. In fact, an estimated 200 aid workers have been killed in Gaza in the last six months. All of us must continue to demand an immediate ceasefire and the unrestricted entry of aid, while we work to end the siege of Gaza and for the liberation of Palestine.

In mourning & solidarity,

All of us at MECA
