In the Occupied Palestinian Territories, an estimated 2.5 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance. 1.6 million are in the Gaza Strip.
MedGlobal, in partnership with the Palestinian American Medical Association (PAMA) and in coordination with the Ministry of Health, deployed a medical mission to the Gaza Strip. During this mission, experienced healthcare professionals provided both medical and surgical services in Al-Shifa, Nasser and Rantisi Hospitals.
Over 300 patients received medical and surgical care, with training and capacity building for over 100 local health care professionals. Training included using point-of-care ultrasounds and critical care techniques as well as demonstrating the latest surgical techniques.
To date, MedGlobal and Rahma Worldwide have distributed over $2 million of medical supplies and equipment supporting over 31,000 beneficiaries. We supported the refurbishment and opened an intensive care unit for children in Kamal Edwan Hospital in the north of Gaza, with over 800 children supported in this effort. Medical supplies were also provided for over 1200 patients with end-stage kidney patients.
