An Update from Ahli Hospital in Gaza

Jun 25, 2021

Suhaila Tarazi, hospital director writes: Thanks to donors from St. Mark’s and across the country, the hospital has been able to:

  • Increase the free community clinic from one day to four days a week
  • Purchase fuel to power generators 18 to 20 hrs each day when the power grid is oine Purchase medicine and medical supplies
  • Expand its burn center to treat an increased number of children with burns
  • Expand its psychosocial rehabilitation program to treat children and their caregivers severely traumatized by the war

She said: “The damage inflicted in less than two weeks will take years, if not decades, to rebuild, but the clean up by Gazan youth has started on a small scale and shops and banks have opened for business, though schools remain closed… Though the situation in Gaza is horrifying and grim, we at Ahli are confident that through your support we will replace despair with hope, mourning with comfort, humiliation with dignity, and injury with healing. We pray for the day when the cycle of violence is over and the children of Abraham can live together in peace.”
