Japan pledged to promote "offer-based" development assistance instead of waiting for developing countries to request such funding in its annual economic aid policy document.

Dear mastodonian friends!

Does anyone knows any decent international organization that can provide medical assistance for person with ASD and ARFID, granted that there's most likely a lot of stuff outside of ASD and ARFID issues Or even charity international organizations that can help in situation with health issues and whatnot.

A good analysis of the proposed US port in Gaza from Zvi Bar'el in Haaretz.

We don't have the ships or the equipment we used to have, and what we do have is far away and not even close to being enough.

Focus on the pier thing he's talking about. Ignore his comments at the end blaming Hamas it's entirely Israel's fault for blocking aid that led to this.

We couldn't put enough supplies ashore if we wanted to.

Am fine being proven wrong if it comes to good in the end. Actually hope he's right, and not just blowing smoke.

"Gallant says sea corridor plan for Gaza aid will help bring Hamas down"

"The Pentagon has said it could take up to 60 days to build the pier with the help of 1,000 troops - none of whom would go ashore."

"Meanwhile, an aid ship laden with some 200 tonnes of food was still waiting for clearance to set sail from a port in Cyprus on Sunday morning."

"However Oscar Camps, the founder of Open Arms, told the Associated Press that at the destination point - which remains a secret - a team from the World Central Kitchen has been building a pier to receive the aid."

Supplies to avert famine and disease are an issue the U.S. must demand of Israel, not request.

There will be a humanitarian corridor from to . This should enable the supply of aid to Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.
A test will first be carried out on Friday. The corridor should come into full operation on Saturday or Sunday.

The United States is planning to set up a temporary port on the coast of the Gaza Strip to ramp up the delivery of aid and ease the humanitarian crisis in the territory sparked by the Israel-Hamas war.
