Emergency appeal launched by overwhelmed Anglican hospital in Gaza City

Posted May 22, 2018

[Anglican Communion News Service] The Anglican Diocese in Jerusalem has launched an emergency appeal for funds to support its al-Ahli Arab Hospital in Gaza City. The Anglican-run hospital has been overwhelmed by the number of casualties sustained during protests across the Gaza strip this month.

“Our Ahli Arab Hospital in Gaza had been literally working around the clock to serve the wounded from the escalating violence in the Gaza Strip ever since the United States formally opened its Embassy in Jerusalem on May 14,” Archbishop Suheil Dawani, the Anglican Archbishop in Jerusalem and Primate of the Anglican Province of Jerusalem and the Middle East, said.

Presiding Bishop Michael Curry visited the hospital in March during a Lenten pilgrimage to the Holy Land. You can read about his visit to the hospital here and about his pilgrimage here.

  1. I visited this hospital for a morning in 1990 when on a medical mission to Occupied Palestine. Six of us from the 20 member delegation were sent to Gaza. Three went back to Jerusalem after we visited Al Ahli Hospital, as we were tear gassed and shot at by the Israeli soldiers as we left the hospital grounds. Three of us stayed the planned for two nights visiting the government hospital, the Red Cresent, Jabalia refugee camp, and other places germaine to the mission.
    What wil be helpful to the hospital and to our brothers and sisters in Gaza?
