Movement restrictions in the West Bank have a severe impact on the health services available to poor and marginalized communities. Clinics are provided in some regions by local charitable organizations, but patients are often let down by the lack of key medical equipment and medicines.
Islamic Relief worked with charitable clinics in three communities to benefit over 33,000 local patients. Vital equipment was provided, from sophisticated X-ray machines and heart monitors to basic but essential items such as trolleys and measuring scales.
As well as hospital equipment, Islamic Relief also provided much-needed medicines, including antibiotics, pain relief, and medication for chronic conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes.
Although long-term, these illnesses are easily manageable with access to the necessary medication, preventing more serious consequences. Sarah Hamdan, aged 35, knows how important this is: “Now I can get my diabetes medicine from the clinic, and my mother-in-law receives blood pressure medicine with regular check-ups. Now I have no worries regarding my children’s health conditions…may God bless you all.”
“ Now I have no worries regarding my children’s health conditions…may God bless you all. ”
