PalMed Europe Emergency team moved to Gaza
In response to the humanitarian and health crisis in Gaza, PalMed Europe will dispatch a medical convoy to the strip under siege and under fire.
The team will leave Europe aiming to enter Gaza this weekend through Rafah Crossing following the coordination withthe Egyption authorities. It includes specialists in surgery and anesthesia. The convoy is to be followed by several others in the coming weeks to help the rileaf efforts in Gaza. Dr Abu Nada, from PalMed office in Gaza confirmed the situation to be catastrophic with the health sector struggling to cope with the critical flow of casualties while supplies of medicines, equipment and energy at a disastrous low.
PalMed had issued an urgent call for its members to volunteer to help with the campaign, either by volunteering to visit the strip or by helping their national team’s campaigns. Fund raising is also under way to help cover the cost of aids.
Our convoys on the ground in Gaza will keep our concerned members updated with the situation there and will advise us on the needs and developments.
We continue to raise public and professional awareness and identify ways to address the emergent needs.
Together we save lives
