# South African help organisation Gift of the Givers has confirmed the death of the head of its office in Gaza, Ahmed Abbasi, during the ongoing conflict between Hamas and Israel. He and his brother were killed when returning from morning prayer. The organisation says Abbasi served the people of the enclave with distinction for the past 10 years and implemented multiple projects, including the care of orphans, widows, the elderly and sick people. It says he delivered water through their desalination plants, distributed food parcels, provided meals and upgraded damaged homes.
