The situation in Palestine needs no introduction. In recent escalation of the ongoing violence, at least 24 Palestinians including 9 children have been killed and more than 700 have been hurt in and around East Jerusalem. Thousands of lives have been affected.
MAA has conducted a needs assessment, and is launching an immediate Emergency Appeal to assist with essential humanitarian aid in Jerusalem as well as Gaza. The injuries from the conflict vary from bullet hits to the spleen, legs, head and chest to those from explosions and air raids. As the existing medical infrastructure in Palestine is fragile, our focus will be to provide wheelchairs, stretchers, oxygen cylinders, general medical aid and food packs.
At least 1.9 million Palestinians experience, or are at risk of, conflict and violence, displacement and denial of access to livelihoods, among other threats. The most vulnerable Palestinians are currently denied or restricted in their access to essential services such as water and health care. Denied freedom of movement and many human rights, thousands of Palestinians are stuck in limbo, unable to enter or leave the Gaza Strip. As a result, they lack access to adequate medical care, and the ability to work and pursue education.
We urge you to donate generously to support the Palestine Emergency Appeal and help our brothers and sisters in Jerusalem and Gaza - Palestine.
