Gaza Emergency Appeal

Medical Aid for Palestinians is supporting emergency response in Gaza. Please give an urgent donation today.

This information is correct as of Monday, 22 August 2022.

A ceasefire that brought an end to three days of Israel’s bombardment of Gaza in August has so far held, but Gaza’s struggling healthcare system is still reeling from the offensive. Health services are suffering severe shortages. 40% of drugs and 20% of medical consumables are currently at zero stock, with only one month’s supply left. Hospitals in Gaza were forced temporarily to halt elective surgeries and outpatient clinic services to prioritise the emergency.

In addition, the health system in Gaza is still recovering from Israel’s 11-day military assault in May 2021 and four deadly waves of COVID-19. This in the context of 15 years of illegal closure and blockade, that has created a humanitarian crisis which deteriorates year-on-year.

MAP has responded to the recent emergency in Gaza by releasing prepositioned medicines and disposables. Longer-term, we aim to replenish our pre-positioned stock worth US$260,000. We are also providing trauma training for Palestinian health workers to enhance their ability to respond to emergencies.

With your support, MAP can help ensure that hospitals have the medical resources they need right now. Thank you for your support.

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.
