With almost 45 tons of flour distributed for free to some 20 bakeries and sweetshops in the Old City of Hebron, the TIPH concluded its recurring Ramadan project.

The project, aimed at attracting Hebronites to the city center by selling bread and sweets at half price during the month of Ramadan, has been very successful.

— We are delighted to see how the Old City has flourished during Ramadan this year. Of course many factors are contributing to this development, and the TIPH’s free flour project is one of them. Since normalisation of life in the city is at the core of our mandate, we find this development very encouraging, says TIPH Community Relations Officer Håkan Ylipää.

The project was carried out in cooperation with the Hebron Rehabilitation Committee (HRC).
