(STATS) The Big Gaza Aid Myth

Is Gaza Starving?

The international community recently claimed the Israeli government was not supplying the Gazan population with aid.

The diagrams above show that Israel supplies Gaza with so much food that if aid were distributed equally there would be enough for each Gazan to receive 5547% more than the average Bangladeshi.

And while Gaza receives more aid than the other nation, they actually top the rich list of these 10 nations with a GDP per Capita of $2,900.


1 loaf of bread is equivalent to 675g of food aid

All food aid statistics were collected from the UN World Food Programme
All population estimates were from CIA World Factbook
All GDP per capita estimates were from CIA World Factbook - 2008


In the first quarter of 2010 Israel allowed 48,000 tons of food aid into Gaza, lifting the monthly average from 12,000 to 16,000 tons of aid. (source)
