Your support brings emergency aid to Gaza!

Thanks to your support, MADRE was able to send two disbursements of funds to our local partners in Gaza, the Palestinian Medical Relief Society (PMRS), so that they could deliver emergency care to hundreds of injured civilians, particularly women and children. Our partners recently sent us a letter thanking us for your support and highlighting the important work that it helped to accomplish. We’d like to share some of those updates now.

In Gaza, PMRS operates four clinics, four mobile clinics, two physiotherapy centers, one assistive device center, and individual relief services. During the recent escalation of violence in Gaza, all PMRS centers and teams were equipped to offer emergency health services and disburse medication. Their local positioning and know-how particularly equipped them to deliver emergency care to vulnerable neighborhoods in Gaza where the need is greatest. We also learned that PMRS held psychosocial support sessions for children traumatized by the recent violence. Sessions were held in schools and activities included therapeutic games and coloring.

Thank you for your support of this important, life-saving work!
