Emergency Medical Supplies for Hospitals in Gaza

Protesters in Gaza

Protests along Israel’s perimeter fence with Gaza, calling for the right of return and the lifting of the closure on Gaza, have resulted in rapidly increasing numbers of deaths and injuries.

Since the ‘Great March of Return’ began on 30th March 2018, more than 100 were reported killed and 13,000 injured. 

 In just one day (14/5/2018) 59 Palestinians were reported killed by Israeli forces, including seven children, according to the Ministry of Health (MoH) in Gaza.

2,771 people were reported injured, including 1,359 by live ammunition, with 130 people in critical condition, according to the MoH.

 Medical facilities in Gaza are completely overwhelmed and struggling to deal with the very high number of casualties.

Following his visit to Shifa Hospital this afternoon (15.5.2018), the Humanitarian Coordinator, Mr. Jamie McGoldrick, stated:

“I am deeply concerned by the tragedy unfolding in Gaza.

The medical teams at Shifa Hospital are overwhelmed, dealing with hundreds of cases of injured, including women and children.

They are stretched to the limit and are running out of essential medical supplies.

Particularly worrying is the public hospitals in Gaza have less than a week of fuel reserves to continue their operations.”

Please help Welfare Association provide urgently needed medical supplies for Ministry of Health Hospitals which are receiving the greatest numbers of injured patients.
