MedGlobal and Rahma Worldwide sent a medical convoy to Gaza in January 2020. MedGlobal continues to support patients in Gaza by donating lifesaving medications, medical supplies, and PPE, in partnership with Rahma Worldwide and the Palestinian American Medical Association (PAMA).
Specifically, this convoy included overseeing the distribution of medical containers with $675k of cancer and dialysis medications to Al Nasser Hospital in Khan Younis and the European Hospital. We also delivered a mammogram machine, 4 baby incubators, and a container of medical supplies to Kamal Edwan Hospital, which were donated by the Catholic Medical Mission Board (CMMB) and valued at $2.3 million. The medical team also visited the Al-Shifa Hospital and provided care for patients in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), and led follow-ups on the Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) training we provided in June 2019.
This was MedGlobal’s second medical volunteer trip to Gaza. In June 2019, MedGlobal deployed the first medical, surgical, and training mission which consisted of 14 physicians and nurses in collaboration with PAMA. Our team trained our Palestinian colleagues on the use of new technology, including portable ultrasound, and donated 6 devices to the Al-Shifa and Al-Naser Hospitals.
