Amos Trust's emergency appeal is for the work of the Al Ahli Hospital and our other partners seeking to respond to the humanitarian disaster that Gaza is experiencing. We were horrified by the appalling attack on the hospital on 17th October, that left nearly 500 people dead. The hospital has long been seen as a beacon of hope and a place of peace in the heart of Gaza. Hours after the attack the hospital resumed providing emergency healthcare despite the devastation surrounding it.
The bombardment of Gaza has already led to over 11,000 deaths, thousands more injured, untold destruction and 1,500,000 displaced people. Families are facing critical shortages of food, water and fuel as well as major sanitation problems. Many are either trapped in their homes, with nowhere to flee or are seeking what ever shelter they can find. But as we hear from all our partners in Gaza: "There are no safe spaces in Gaza".
This micro project will help Al Ahli hospital to have access to the funds they need to provide life-saving medical care in Gaza City.
We are long-term partners with Al Ahli hospital on their breast cancer screening programme. This emergency appeal aims to save lives during the current outbreak of violence and to offer life-saving healthcare 24/7 to Gazans.

Every microproject is intended to use the donations it receives in accordance with its stated description; however, it is important to provide project leaders with the flexibility to maximize the potential benefit from the donations they receive. This means that your donation may be used as a part of the main project that supports this microproject, specifically Breast screening for 10,000 women in Gaza. In this event, the project leader is required to post an update to the microproject detailing the results and reasons behind this change.
If you or any other donor is unhappy with the way their funds have been used, he or she can reallocate their donation using the GlobalGiving guarantee.
