Several World Central Kitchen workers killed in Israeli attack on Gaza’s Deir el-Balah

Australian, Canadian, Polish, American, British and Palestinian aid workers were reportedly among seven killed in an Israeli attack following the delivery of food relief in central Gaza’s Deir el-Balah, the Gaza government media office reports. US-based aid group World Central Kitchen (WCK) said “several” staff were killed in an Israeli air strike and called on Israel to stop “this indiscriminate killing” in Gaza. Australia’s Prime Minister says he expects full accountability for the deaths. The Israeli army says it’s conducting a thorough review at the highest levels into the incident. Al Jazeera’s Hind Khoudary Joins us on the phone from the al-Aqsa hospital in central Gaza’s Deir el-Balah, where the victims have been taken.

” Myanmar Chefs 5F, Food Aid: Free Fresh Food For Fun 2024 “

” VolunTourism @ Myanmar Lovers & Myanmar Chefs – Free Fresh Food For Fun 2024 

Myanmar Ethical Chefs Social Responsibility to Orphanage far outside of Yangon.

Today,- 16.3.2024 we left early at morning to Yangon fresh fruit wholesale market at Bayintnaung with MCA Naing Oo, Khet Khet, Giacomo to buy for 10 days fresh healthy food most long lasting season vegetables, onions, potatoes ( high nutrition ), dry lentils, fruits, dry Soya, much Chili and some Fresh Herbs.. 

The next few days and weeks we will be there as well for similar places in Need of Food: ” The 5 F “,….

 ” Free Fresh Food For Fun 2024 in Myanmar ” Donations thanks to YOU with support by Chefs from all Myanmar.   

All for a Rakhine Monastery far outside of Yangon, which has been there for many years, — and has over 75 orphans and young children to take care of , have a secure place to stay as well as attend the area school and a teacher for special support education at the monastery.. A Place where Ma Khet Khet visits and has donated many years already. 

It is as in a semi desert with no electricity lines as a years ago new city development project and Government plans changed, failed or just on hold.

The Bayintnaung WholeSale Market is actually always like a Yangon Myanmar Culinary Adventure to me since decades we come here whenever we buy for biggest and big donation and humanitarian aid cooking or food providing as flooding, cyclones or as now the ” 4C1s ” as since 2020 in all Myanmar. 

Always the best most fresh vegetables and fruits are here , 24/7 open and most is only at 40% of cost compared to all usual retail markets in Yangon so here 1 Euro makes good for 3 Euro. And there is always a bargain even from the shop owner himself. It is a very good and fair ” Business Alliance and great Myanmar Business Ethics ” there. All casual on trust and hand shake. Next to the good ” Win – Win ” convenience that there are the strongest guys stand by ready to shuttle all the bulk food from traders’ place back to the car at a fair rate.

Then we took to the road and had a well 2 hours drive not much feeling anymore to be still in Yangon ( outskirts ) where also several Universities are all transferred there by end of the 90 ties during Gen Khin Nyunt s time to have all ” Critical Thinking ” ( which he himself promoted much in mid 2004 after 8 weeks he was gone ) the Universities also far outside then built to have all out of the city . 

No more Diesel available that day along the way ?? Not sure what happened: All petrol stations had the longest cues of trucks and cars along the roads as today there seemed to be No more Diesel available — people in Myanmar used to — so our car as well needed much Diesel and zero way, lucky we made it home. 

At the monastery – Orphanage we downloaded all food and advised to quickly take out of the bags as the heat and moisture would kill all quick — much items are good for long storage. Rice seemed to be OK. They have a source so we avoided this as well as cooking oil. I avoided it first as Rakhine usually eat less cooking oil compared to Burmese specially compared to Bagan people. As well if Myanmar uses cooking oil it is as the Indians are often totally over used or many times used to deep fry items which to me kills everything good at the food as well the oil as energy is also gone by the often heating no one eats. So my personal way of donation never includes cooking Oil as it is a waste in Myanmar as well the by far most high cost factor. 

We bought :

– 20 kg Potatoes

– 40 kg Eggplants

– 10 big Cabbage

– 10 kg Ginger

–   5 big Gourd

– 10 kg Taro roots

– 10 big bundle Lemongrass 

– 10 Big Pumpkin

– 10 kg fresh Chili ( Rakhine like it Hot and Spicy )
– 34 kg Onions 

– 18 kg yellow Lentils 

– 10 kg Dry Tofu Balls ( great for Vegi Curries or Soups ) 

– 30 kg of Fresh Tomatoes

It was easy to see along the way and in the area where the Orphanage – Monastery is located very dry and hot — not a fresh vegetable place all if at all arrives from

far away is expensive and so not bought most time.. Nutrition and Vitamin Rich Food most needed for these children in their early stage to grow and learn.
