UN agency still housing and feeding thousands in Gaza

From Nine To Noon, 9:32 am on 18 December 2014

Months later, little progress has been made in rebuilding efforts, and the United Nations agency feeding and sheltering refugees says the situation is still dire. UNRWA's Gaza Field Office's Deputy Director of Operations, Scott Anderson, looks back at the 2014 conflict and ahead to what is needed for the enclave in 2015.
