URGENT APPEAL - Patients in Gaza need our help

*denotes required fields

Medicines and other medical supplies in Gaza's hospitals are in desperately short supply. Please make a donation today, and help get medicines in to the hands of patients.

Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP) declared the situation in Gaza a humanitarian crisis in August 2017. In the midst of electricity shortages and raw sewage contaminating the water supply, essential medicines were at their lowest level since 2014. They remain critically low. 

With your help, we can help re-supply vital medicines. Please donate today.

Medical items are in desperately short supply - empty shelves like these are a frequent sight at the Central Drug Store in Gaza.

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.

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 over the years.

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

This year, for our Zakat givers, we have selected four projects which work with the most vulnerable people in occupied Palestine and the Palestinian refugee camps of Lebanon. 100% of your Zakat donation will be spent on these projects. When you are making your donation please ensure you tell us that it is Zakat.

We will disburse the Zakat gifts to the following projects in West bank, Gaza and Lebanon. If there is a particular project you would like us to spend your donation on then please do tell us.

Emergency Response Projects. This project helps those in urgent need affected by conflict and displacement. The project includes supplying hygiene and sanitation kits to protect the very young, replenishing medicines which have run out in hospitals, and supplying blankets and mattresses when families have lost everything.

Maternal and child health Project in Jordan Valley, West Bank. The Medical Aid for Palestinians’ mobile clinic brings medical aid directly to the most marginalised Bedouin communities in remote, inaccessible parts of the Jordan valley who have no other access to primary health care.

Maternal and Child health in Lebanon. The conditions in the overcrowded refugee camps of Lebanon cause significant risk to mothers and their infants. Medical Aid for Palestinians provides the only midwife outreach team directly into the heart of the camps, delivering medical aid to vulnerable mothers and their children.

Critical medical care for Palestinians fleeing violence in Syria. By May 2013 more than 55,000 Palestinians had arrived in Lebanon, fleeing the civil war in Syria – becoming refugees twice over. Once they arrive in Lebanon they are met with overcrowded housing, high costs and an expensive private health care system. Those in need of tertiary healthcare, like heart surgery, kidney dialysis or chemotherapy, have to find a way to fund their treatment – when they have left everything they own behind in Syria. Medical Aid for Palestinians is working together with UNRWA, the UN agency in charge of looking after Palestinians, to cover the cost of life saving tertiary care for Palestinians escaping Syria who can’t afford the cost of their treatment.

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