Palestine: Al-Ahli Arab Hospital

In 2014, prior to the recent outbreak of war between Hamas militants and the Israeli Defence Force, plans were in place to continue the Child Nutrition Project through the Al-Ahli Arab Hospital.

This vital service was postponed as the hospital deals with the influx of victims from the shelling and mortar attacks from the opposing forces.

During the conflict, Al-Ahli staff maintained around-the-clock presence at the hospital, receiving wounded people and providing them with the critical medical care that they needed. Like other hospitals in Gaza, Al-Ahli is experiencing severe shortages in medicine, fuel for electrical generators, food for patients and food for parcels for many in the community seeking help.

The hospital itself has also sustained attack, with structural damage from airstrikes affecting the ventilation system in the operating theatre and emergency room. An exterior wall and the main steam pipe was destroyed, leaving the hospital without hot water and with a reduced number of rooms to house patients.

The need for services such as the Child Nutrition project is now even more acute. Its value to the local community is immeasurable, and as Al-Ahli Arab hospital was setup and is run by the Anglican/Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem, it provides a tangible witness to the love of Christ in action.
