The Jordan Hashemite Charity Organization (JHCO), in collaboration with the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA), has dispatched three more aircraft carrying 41 tons of winter clothes, medicines, and food parcels for families in Gaza.

The aid is set to be delivered through the Rafah Crossing.

Hussein Al-Shibli, the Secretary-General of JHCO, stated in a press release that "The winter season has always been challenging for our people in Gaza. Given the current circumstances since the beginning of Oct., securing them with winter clothing has become a top priority. Therefore, the materials sent range from medical supplies to food to winter clothing to meet these needs within the available capacity. We aim to send more aircraft and increase the quantity sent."

Notably, the number of aircraft sent by JHCO to the people in Gaza has reached 20 planes and 39 trucks loaded with medical, food and relief supplies.

JHCO continues to receive cash donations through its bank account at Union Bank, account number JO32 UBSI 1030 0000 4010 1659 9151 06, or through electronic wallets, "eFAWATEERcom," and via its website www.jhco.org.jo.
