Gaza Update - July 29, 2014
The only power plant in Gaza has been destroyed. As a result, 1.8 million people in Gaza have no power, no running water, and no sewage treatment.
Disease is sure to follow. The bombing continues, and conditions worsen for Al Ahli Hospital and their heroic staff. Reports say that 72 United Nations schools, hospitals, and offices have been damaged in the fighting in Gaza. There are 11 full service hospitals in Gaza for 1.8 million people. Two have been destroyed and several are badly damaged.
How much more can they endure?

Some believe that the situation in the Holy Land is hopeless. But while many work for peace and justice, families need to eat tonight; children need to go to school tomorrow.
We can do something. We can help in concrete,
important ways to educate and provide
compassionate healthcare now.
- Anne Lynn, President, AFEDJ

These photos come directly from Ahli Hospital. The staff remains around the clock, providing compassionate care. While they care for hundreds of wounded, they also care for their families who often have nowhere else to go. The result is expanded need for food and fuel.
The hospital prays that you'll consider the following needs and donate whatever you can to help.
