Healing emotional wounds in Gaza

by International Medical Corps

International Medical Corps responded quickly to the December 2008 conflict in Gaza, which killed 1,300 people, injured 5,300 more, and displaced more than 80,000. We deployed five medical teams to address civilians’ health needs, including primary health care, psychosocial support services, and mental health programs. We also sent in eight containers of emergency medical supplies that could each treat 10,000 patients. With your help, we were able to provide life-saving medical care and mental health support to those in need.

International Medical Corps identified the massive need for mental health services in its emergency response to Gaza in which we deployed five mobile medical teams and provided life-saving medical care and supplies.
