This initiative aims to address urgent medical needs and provide essential food and supplies amid the horrifying conditions the Israelis are imposing on Gazans.

The medical supplies include anaesthesia machines, ventilators, kidney dialysis equipment, monitors for tracking patients' vital signs, equipment for premature newborns, essential medications as well as medicines for treating chronic diseases.

Additionally, the convoy carries significant quantities of staple dry food items like rice, pasta, sugar, and oil, along with beverages and dairy products.

The aid also includes blankets, hygiene products, and clothing.

The aid will be sent through the Rafah Border Crossing and distributed by the Palestinian Red Crescent to ensure it reaches displaced children and families.

Tamer Abdel-Fattah, executive director of the Tahya Misr Fund, highlighted the involvement of young volunteers in this humanitarian effort.

Tahya Misr Fund sent relief convoys for Gaza in November 2023, consisting of 199 trucks and two ambulances, and in 2021, a convoy with 130 trucks.
