GAZA: BETHLEHEM’S CARITAS BABY HOSPITAL READY TO TAKE THE CHILDREN INJURED IN THE GAZA STRIP

Bethlehem’s Caritas Baby Hospital is ready to take the children injured in the Gaza Strip. "Since, as Palestinians, we cannot get to Gaza, we want to provide any help we can, here, in Bethlehem. To do this, the hospital is ready to take to Bethlehem the children coming from Gaza who need treatment, through appropriate transport", said Hiyam Awad Marzouqa, chief consultant at the children’s hospital that, with the Swiss Catholic organization "Help Bethlehem Children", is setting up a "network of aids" specifically for the children of the Gaza Strip. "Traditional aids are not enough in Gaza. A flexible form of cooperation is needed", stated today Anna Beck, director of the organisation. "This network of aids is supported by Europeans, Palestinians and Israelis, and the first measures have already been taken. They include the delivery of medical materials to the travelling hospitals of the "Palestinian Medical Relief Society" which works in Gaza. We are already thinking of rehabilitation schemes for traumatised children; aids to the population are also being provided by Israeli people". "Fundamental respect for other people, the pursuit of justice in the mutual approach, and the protection of debts make us work towards the same end”, explained Barbara Schmid-Federer, deputy president of the organisation.
