QRCS, PRCS Set to Start $672,000 Relief Aid Distributions in Gaza Strip

The representation mission of Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) in Gaza and Palestine Red Crescent Society (PRCS) have held a meeting to finalize preparations for the procurement of emergency relief, food, and medical aid to help the victims of the recent military attacks on Gaza Strip.

Under the current phase of the "We Are All Palestine" campaign, QRCS will provide medications and medical consumables costing $300,000 and another $372,000 worth of relief and food items. These supplies will be distributed to around 60,000 persons from the most affected families.

As announced by HE Sheikh Abdullah bin Thamer Al-Thani, President of QRCS, the QR 60 million fundraising campaign was launched to respond to the impact of war on the people of Palestine. It would help a total of 500,000 Palestinians to get over the calamity and restore their normal lives very soon.

 

As early as the beginning of events in the Palestinian Territories, QRCS provided every form of assistance available on the ground, thanks to its already existing representation missions in Gaza, the West Bank, and Al-Quds.

In cooperation with PRCS, QRCSs field personnel distributed 600 food parcels to 4,000 beneficiaries, offered psychological support consultations to the public, and trained 60 physicians and nurses to enhance their emergency assessment skills.

Emergency departments at Gaza hospitals received vital signs monitors, medical tents, beds, and equipment to meet the increasing demand. The staff of QRCSs mission in Gaza donated blood to the Blood Bank.

Under QRCSs Gaza Specialized Surgery Support Project, seven consultant physicians of cardiovascular surgery, cardiothoracic surgery, orthopedics, urology, and anesthetics performed over 100 surgeries for critical cases injured during the aggression.
