Episcopal Relief & Development Partners with Al Ahli Hospital in Response To Israel-Hamas War

Al Ahli Hospital, in partnership with Episcopal Relief & Development, continues its mission to provide medical assistance in the Gaza Strip to all people in need.

NEW YORK, Oct. 19, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Episcopal Relief & Development continues to partner with Al Ahli Hospital, a ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem, to provide emergency medical support in the Gaza Strip in response to the Israel-Hamas war.

"Hospital staff are risking their lives to save the lives of others," said Nagulan Nesiah, Senior Program Officer, Episcopal Relief & Development. "The team at Al Ahli continues to be an inspiring and dedicated presence in Gaza."

Following the deadly explosion on Tuesday evening, Al Ahli Hospital, in partnership with Episcopal Relief & Development, is determined to continue its mission to serve all people in need by offering emergency treatment. While there has been periodic violence in the region for decades, need within northern Gaza has surged since the attack on October 7. Since then, explosions throughout Gaza have brought the death toll to over 3000 people and have injured many thousands more.

Movement restrictions and closed borders have created challenges in sending and receiving aid. However, Episcopal Relief & Development's support has enabled the hospital to find local resources, increase their number of beds and maintain 24-hour staffing to continue critical operations. Al Ahli Hospital has been able to meet the needs of hundreds of wounded adults and children who have migrated to the hospital after their homes and refugee camps were destroyed.

"Hospital staff are risking their lives to save the lives of others. Many have been injured while working, some staff have been displaced from their homes and have lost family members," said Nagulan Nesiah, Senior Program Officer, Episcopal Relief & Development. "The team at Al Ahli continues to be an inspiring and dedicated presence in Gaza."

Please join Episcopal Relief & Development in mourning all those lost to violence. Please continue to pray for peace in the Holy Land and for Episcopal Relief & Development partners who are working to serve all people who come to them seeking treatment and safety.

Support of the Episcopal Relief & Development Middle East Fund will help to address immediate and long-term needs created by the Israel-Hamas war through locally-led partnerships.
