A non-governmental organization (NGO), called "The Campaign for The Palestine Children" which is located in Toshima Ward, Tokyo in Japan, distributed food in Gaza on February 28, 2009. The citizens who suffered from the food sudden rise formed a long queue.
The Campaign bought vegetable and eggs from the farmers who were not able to sell these outside of the Gaza Strip because of the boundary blockage. The Campaign distributed these to families having deaf dependants besides homes who lost the father as a breadwinner.
One of the deaf persons, aged 33, said in sign language while queuing up in the row of the distribution. "Especially, the egg is awfully so costly that I was not able to let my children eat it for a long time. I want to return to the house and to make delicious meal for them." He expressed happiness about this food service.
