On 20 February, baby Maryam was reunited with her mother after six months apart because of Israel’s permit regime.
Though their story has a happy ending, Maryam’s case is not an isolated one. Staff at al Mekassed told us that between one and three children from Gaza are hospitalised there every month without their parents due to Israel’s permit regime.
Access to healthcare is a human right. Please help us demand that patients from Gaza and their companions be allowed to travel freely for medical care by emailing your MP today.
