New MAP video: Help keep me on the road! MAP’s mobile health clinic

In January, the new mobile clinic of Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP) hit the road to provide a vital lifeline for Bedouin communities in the occupied West Bank.

“This clinic is very important for the resilience of the people living here. It is also important because it provides essential medical services,” - Patient of the mobile clinic

The MAP-funded mobile clinic, run in partnership with the Islah Charitable Society, is a vital provider of primary health services, first aid training and maternal health to 27 Bedouin communities in the West Bank. For over 10 years, our old clinic vehicle has driven all around the Jordan Valley, making regular visits to marginalised communities and delivering medication to patients living far from the nearest hospital or health clinic. A decade of driving over the difficult terrain has taken its toll on the old vehicle.

Thanks to our supporters however, we purchased a new vehicle and expanded our range of services!

Now each community will get even better care.

MAP followed its work throughout the Jordan Valley and interviewed members of the communities it serves. You can watch the video below!

Help us keep this service on the road

The critical services provided by the mobile health clinic have been jeopardised by the US administration’s cuts to UNRWA, the UN agency responsible for humanitarian support to Palestinian refugees, which was contributing medicines to the clinic. This has led to a shortfall of £18,550 for medicines needed by the clinic. With your support, we are raising these funds so we can continue to support Palestinian Bedouin communities to hold on to their health and their way of life in the face of increasing restrictions and threats.

Your support is needed to keep the mobile clinic running.
