There has been a surge of new coronavirus infections, and related deaths, among Palestinian communities in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. We have launched a new Emergency Appeal in response to the outbreak – your support is urgently needed to help save lives.

In the first half of July, we have seen a surge in COVID-19 cases and related deaths in the West Bank. Hebron district has been hit hardest, with further outbreaks in Bethlehem, Nablus and East Jerusalem. Approximately 14,000 cases have been recorded to date (29 July), with over 500 new cases confirmed in just one day.

The risk of a major outbreak in Gaza could rise significantly if the Rafah Crossing with Egypt opens and thousands of people return to the region. In one of the most densely populated places in the world, effective self-isolation is nearly impossible. With limited clean water, essential hygiene and infection control is a monumental challenge.

The number of new COVID-19 cases is also starting to rise in Lebanon, with increased community transmission raising the risk of outbreaks among Palestinians in the refugee camps.

As part of our emergency response, MAP is prioritising infection prevention and containment, including; COVID-19 testing kits, hygiene kits to quarantined families, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for health workers and antiseptics/disinfectants to help prevent further spread of the disease. We also want to supply more out-of-stock lifesaving medicines and disposables to hospitals to support the care of the critically ill, and train key health workers to meet the complex care needs of these patients.

Zakat donations to Medical Aid for Palestinians

There are many occasions throughout the year that people choose to send Medical Aid for Palestinians a donation to help Palestinians in need.

Over the years, the annual Medical Aid for Palestinians Ramadan appeal has provided considerable benefit to some of the most vulnerable and marginalised Palestinians communities in Lebanon and occupied Palestine.

How does Medical Aid for Palestinians use Zakat for the benefit of those most in need?

Many medicines and other medical items are in desperately short supply in the occupied Palestinian Territory. MAP is responding by helping to provide as many urgently needed disposables, medicines and equipment as we can. We can only do this thanks to the financial support we receive from supporters like you. 

MAP will use 100% of all Zakat donations we receive to help respond to the current medicines emergency in Gaza and in the West Bank. Your Zakat donation will be used to buy the medicines, medical items and equipment that hospitals need right now. When you make your donation, please ensure you tell us that it is Zakat.

You can make your Zakat Gift have greater impact by adding Gift Aid to your donation.
