European Union officials promised to help provide Gaza with COVID-19 vaccines and clear water, when a delegation from its Office of the EU Representative made its first visit to the Strip in four years. “The moment these vaccines become available we will try our utmost in close cooperation with the United Nations to facilitate this vaccine to those most in need,” Burgsdorff said, adding that this included the elderly and health care workers. He also promised that the EU would provide 150 million Euros for the Gaza Central Desalination Plant, which once completed would allow “the entire drinking water needs” of the two million people who live in Gaza to be “satisfied,” he said.
