MAP's vision is a future where all Palestinians can access an effective, sustainable and locally-led system of healthcare and the full realisation of their rights to health and dignity. 

For over 30 years, we’ve built our reputation on trust in our standards and results. We are committed to being transparent about our governance, activities and finances, so our donors and supporters can trust us to spend their money wisely and the people, communities and partners we work with can help make our work as effective as possible.

To help us achieve our vision, we welcome feedback – good or bad – so we can improve our activities and procedures. We take complaints very seriously and view them as an opportunity to develop.

Comments can relate to any aspect of our work, including our programmes, publications, campaigns, fundraising activities, or staff, consultants and volunteers.

We value feedback and complaints because they enable us to identify problems early on and maintain trust in our policies, practices and programmes.

If you have feedback or want to make a complaint you can:

Medical Aid for Palestinians,

33a Islington Park Street,

London, N1 1QB

Please give as much information as possible and let us know how you would like us to respond to you, providing relevant contact details.

How long will it take?

You will receive an acknowledgement of your complaint within two days of receipt.

We aim to respond fully to all complaints within 10 working days and wherever possible we will get back to you faster.

In more complex situations, where an immediate response is not possible, we will investigate the matter and get back to you as swiftly as we can. If we think it will take longer than 10 days, we will let you know. The longest period it would take to resolve a complaint would be a maximum of up to 12 weeks.

We commit to:

While we treat feedback and complaints very seriously, there may be rare occasions when we choose to not respond. For instance:

If your complaint is not resolved

We really hope that we are able to resolve your complaint in an open and satisfactory way.
