Gift of the Givers Delivers Medical Supplies to Gaza

As the Israeli airstrikes continue in and around Gaza the casualty rate has been steadily increasing to 100 by early this morning many of whom were women and children. Thus far 28 people have been killed. These figures are expected to increase dramatically as munitions strike densely populated civilian localities. There is an ever increasing need for medicines, general medical supplies and medical equipment.Gift of the Givers teams visited the Al-Shiffa Medical Complex yesterday and delivered some of these essential supplies. A child with 80% burns passed on early in the evening and an adult patient passed on following cardiac arrest. The provision of relevant medical supplies during this difficult period will be the main focus of Gift of the Givers. In the meantime we have been providing food parcels to poor families this Ramadaan and are also involved in the construction of a 5-storey Women and Child Care Centre in Gaza presently which is at a very advanced stage in spite of border closures and a shortage of building material.
