Khan Younis, a remote city in Gaza and which borders Israel, has a population of 50 000 people and experiences regular attacks and unrest. No medical facilities exists here to care for those wounded in clashes.
In response, Gift of the Givers built a healthcare centre in Khan Younis, called Khuzaa Clinic. This facility provides primary and maternity healthcare services to the poor. Departments within the centre include a General Practitioner, Paediatric Surgery, Pre-natal Care, Dental Clinic, Laboratory, Pharmacy and Nursing Clinic.
The centre sees approximately 1 800 patients every month. In addition, healthcare workers visit between 30 and 40 patients at home in order to provide medical assistance.
