Medical Assistance in Gaza

Human Appeal International has been working on ground to facilitate and support the Al-Shifa Hospital in the Gaza strip. We have provided 100 beds to cater for the large increase in the number of casualties. We have also provided monitors for the A&E ward and funded paramedics and doctors from abroad to conduct specialised operations. We installed a maternity ward, provided new equipment for the pathology ward, redesigned the burns department and provided a new orthopaedics department. In addition, along with HAI and Human Appeal Gaza we have supplied the following to Al-Shifa Hospital: • CT scanner • X-ray films for radiology • 13 ambulances • 10 kidney dialysis machines • Mortuary equipment • lifesaving drugs and medicine • Two Lorries full of medical kits • an electric generator with the capacity of 1MV

Syria Emergency Medical Relief

In partnership with our International offices, this year we’ve been supplying medical equipment, medication, clean water to Syrian hospitals. We have supported the Reyhanli Rehabilitation Centre and provided 12 emergency ambulances that were desperately needed to treat the victims of the conflict. Since the start of our container project, approximately 21 containers of clothes and medical supplies have been shipped from Ireland since 2011 to Syria and Lebanon. Some of the lifesaving equipment we have been donated includes; a CT scanner, an anaesthetic machine, hospital beds and other state of the art equipment. Our relief efforts were aided from the contributions of our friends at the JBS Company and the Order of Malta as well as our partnerships with hospitals throughout Ireland.
