CONFLICT IN GAZA

Years of socioeconomic decline, conflict, and closure have severely weakened the health sector in the Gaza Strip. The resumption of hostilities in 2015 left many families in Gaza without access to medicines essential to their health. 

To aid the people of Gaza, we delivered more than $1.2 million in medicines to hospitals and clinics in Gaza in June 2015—enough to treat more than 62,000 people.
