Several tons of free flour are being distributed to bakeries and Qatayef sellers in the Old City of Hebron. 

—The purpose is to attract Hebronites to the Old City Center by selling bread and sweets at half price during the month of Ramadan, says TIPH Project Manager Omar Al-Samarai.

A big TV screen, placed at Bin Rushd square, has been promoting the project,and big signs at the bakeries and stores have explained why the bread is cheaper to buy during Ramadan.

— Everyone seems to be very satisfied. We have been informed that the quality of the flour is very high, and we are pleased to see how the Old City is flourishing during Ramadan. Many factors are contributing to this development, and the TIPH’s free flour project is one of them. Normalization of life in the city is an important part of our mandate, and we find this development very encouraging, says Omar Al-Samarai.

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

Qatayef are the traditional sweets for Ramadan, which looks like small pan cakes, and are filled with walnut or cheese, together with sugar.
