Medicine for
a Sick Child

For the last ten years families in Gaza have been living under a blockade, cut-off from basic food and medical supplies. 

Your gift will ensure that a child in Gaza receives the vital medication and health care they need to grow up healthy and strong. It also allows them to access specialist health services for conditions such as anaemia and malnutrition, and psychosocial support for children suffering from trauma.

“I’m very happy in my job and I think we are helping a lot of people and what I love about it is it’s about the children.  It’s always nice to meet healthy ones and also help the ones that are in need.”
Fatima, midwife for our local partner, the Near East Council of Churches in Gaza
