In these turbulent moments, we want to sound a clear and unequivocal call for solidarity.
Over the past several days we have witnessed severe damage to the lives, bodies and souls, property, and rights of Palestinians living under Israeli control. We have witnessed a massive barrage of rockets over towns and cities in Israel, which has already claimed lives, and we have witnessed hate crimes against Israelis and Palestinians which have taken a heavy emotional and physical toll.
We are all too aware of the price paid by victims of violence and hatred. We know that this is a price that a wounded, divided society pays, and we know how long and difficult the recovery will be. Ending the violence is a necessary and basic condition for creating the safe space for the recovery process that we all need.
The health system in Gaza is in a dire state. According to the World Health Organization, there is a severe shortage of essential medications, with some 45% of essential drug items at zero-stock. As of March 2021, 15% of Gaza's hospitals are only partially functioning due to the COVID-19 crisis. Additionally, there is an average of 19.6 hours of electricity available to hospitals in the Strip. Some only average 12 hours per day (such as the European Hospital), where only 55% of the generators available are functional.
In the name of solidarity, we find great importance in a humanitarian action for the people of Gaza. Your donation will be dedicated towards humanitarian aid to Gaza, which will be transferred to hospitals in the Strip by Physicians for Human Rights Israel.
