Regarding the contributions provided by NBC throughout the crisis, Mr. al-Hindi noted that since the outbreak of the crisis, NBC continued its donations, in the form of food packages, and its own products of mineral water, juice, sparkling beverages, and protection kits, and it increased its donations with the beginning of the Holy Month of Ramadan with the aim of easing the economic burdens of the people of Palestine who received the Holy month under extraordinary tough conditions.
NBC’s donations targeted the vulnerable families and the marginalized groups, in addition to the security staff stationed at the 'Barriers of Love’, and the emergency committees, as well as the preventive medicine teams, in order to enable our community to address such pandemic.
