Hundreds of children in Gaza are able to eat fresh hot meals thanks to Amir Khan’s charity along with Smile Aid after raising more than £250,000.

The Amir Khan Foundation and Smile Aid partnered together to deliver essential aid and food to the families in Gaza amid the Middle East war which has seen thousands killed already.

As part of their work, a team is on the ground to deliver hot meals with the charities posting pictures of children holding the food.

Recently, an event was held in Manchester to raise money for Gaza.
