Added on 07/01/2009The 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. The number of casualties coming to the hospital in the present tragic situation is straining its resources and ability to cope almost beyond breaking point.
The Anglican Bishop of Jerusalem, Right Rev. Suheil S. Dawani, has appealed for help. 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.
