hope and healthcare

Every year living under occupation is a struggle for children in Palestine. But 2020 has been exceptionally hard.

Whether they are living under the threat of annexation in the West Bank, deprived of adequate healthcare in unliveable Gaza or struggling in  overcrowded and unsanitary camps in Lebanon, the added threat of COVID-19 will be making their lives even harder. Yet, despite this extra layer of suffering, support like yours is giving Palestinian communities a reason to believe.

In densely populated Gaza, cases of community transmission of the virus are on the rise. In Lebanon, following the explosion in Beirut, there has been a staggering 180% increase. And, in the West Bank, fractured communities are dealing with a further 25,000 cases. MAP is responding to overwhelming medical needs affecting all three areas of operation simultaneously. 

Our teams are working hard to prioritise infection control and protective equipment for health workers as we try to slow the spread of the virus.

A gift from you today means that we can keep up this momentum as well as safeguard our vital children’s services – neonatal, midwifery and malnutrition – so that the very youngest Palestinians are protected.

Your support is keeping the hopes of Palestinian children for the future alive. Please send a gift today. Thank you

Zakat is one of the five pillars of Islam. It is the obligation for Muslims to give a proportion of their wealth to charity each year. 

How does Medical Aid for Palestinians use Zakat Donations?

Across the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt), Palestinian hospitals are in desperate need of basic, yet essential medicines and medical supplies. Many medical items needed to treat patients are regularly in short supply or have already ran out completely. At Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP), we help by purchasing as many urgently needed medicines, medical supplies and equipment as we can. We can only do this thanks to the financial support we receive from supporters like you. You can choose to make your donation to us a 'Zakat donation' by selecting the checkbox in our donation forms. 

MAP uses 100% of all the Zakat donations we receive to respond to the ongoing medicines and medical supply emergency in Gaza and in the West Bank. If you want to make a Zakat donation, please remember to tick the Zakat box on the donation page.

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