Summary

NGO hospitals in Gaza are currently operating without adequate COVID19 testing to safeguard the most vulnerable staff and patients. In communities, the cascading effects of COVID19 are pushing families further into food insecurity. Our partner NGOs ask your help to provide boxes of food, masks, and sanitizers to the most vulnerable. Medical staff at our three partner NGO hospitals ask for COVID19 rapid test kits to test high risk and medically vulnerable patients as well as staff. Please help.

Challenge

While vaccines trickle into Palestine, NGO hospitals are confronting high patient caseloads & few COVID19 testing resources. The latest snapshot (Jan 2021) from randomized household testing conducted by the Health Ministry in Gaza estimates ~40% of Palestinians have been infected since the pandemic began. Without vaccines, COVID19 variants threaten to wreak havoc in Gaza and the whole region through re-infections. Both rapid testing and vaccines are required, now.

Solution

Adding high frequency rapid testing to COVID19 prevention is critical to break infection transmission chains. In turn, less infection means reduced likelihood of new variants emerging. Start with Gaza: Help implement strategic rapid testing for health practitioners, community workers and emergency, maternity, and surgical patients to create COVID19 safe hospital 'bubbles' - and help deliver food parcels and PPE's to destitute families.

Long-Term Impact

Both ongoing rapid testing & vaccines are essential to overcome COVID19. While the debate about vaccine equity between Palestine and Israel has focused on rights, the scientific reality is that with time, variants evade vaccine immunity. This unique time requires realization of our co-dependence, and re-positioning political stalemates to consider mutually assured survival for both Israelis and Palestinians. None of us are safe until we are all safe. And we all deserve to be safe from COVID19.
