Description : Through the ALPC many apply for the ICRC micro economic initiative grants. The grants enable them to provide for themselves and their families, taking control of their future. Since 2016, over 300 people took advantage of ICRC cash grants and its technical support to start new businesses or to reinforce the existing ones.

Paralyzed by severe movement restriction Gaza economy has been steadily deteriorating for the past ten years.
