The Anglican Diocese of Jerusalem operates the Al Ahli Hospital in the heart of Gaza City. It is providing essential frontline medical and emergency humanitarian services to those coming or being brought directly to it. Additionally, it is receiving patients transferred by UNRWA from the Government Hospital Al Shiffa for emergency inpatient and surgical treatment of the wounded and injured. As a non-partisan well established hospital, it is receiving patients from all directions. The number of casualties arriving at the hospital in the present tragic situation is straining its resources and ability to cope almost beyond breaking point.
The Anglican Bishop of Jerusalem, The Right Revd Suheil S. Dawani, has appealed for help. The Church of Ireland Bishops’ Appeal, the Church of Ireland World Aid and Development Programme, is donating €25,000 to the hospital in response to this appeal.
