What We Do

Medical Aid

The Palestinian refugee crisis is the world’s oldest humanitarian catastrophe. The people of Palestine have suffered over many years. In the 21st century, most Palestinians still do not have safe and affordable access to medical treatment, a fundamental human right.

MEDICAL AID – Be a Lifeline #ForPalestine
Medical supplies are at critical levels in the occupied Palestinian territories and many hospitals and clinics are forced to re-use items and delay treatment. In the refugee camps in Lebanon and Jordan, overcrowding and a shortage of services mean that medical supplies are limited.

Interpal is working in the occupied Palestinian territories and refugee camps in Jordan and Lebanon to provide hospitals with essential medical aid. But with the need being great, we need you to act as a lifeline for Palestine.

Medical Aid Facts:

– In Gaza, an average of 25.7% of medicines on the essential drug list and 47% of medical disposables are at zero-stock levels.

– Nearly 50% of Gaza’s medical equipment is outdated and the average wait for spare parts is approximately 6 months.

– A doctor in a refugee camp health clinic usually sees, on average, 117 patients per day.

– The maternal health situation in the occupied Palestinian territories remains desperate: many facilities and maternity clinics are overwhelmed and are forced to close.

Emergency Aid


During a severe crisis such as the recent one in Gaza (July – August 2014), we work with international partners (such as UNRWA), local hospitals and the Ministry of Health, in order to be able to respond in a fast and effective way. We open medical points for displaced people, provide hospitals with medical supplies such as disposables, medical cushions, solutions for laboratories and assistive devices such as crutches and wheelchairs. We hire qualified ambulance service teams and support pharmacists and nurses to help hospitals cope with the influx of patients. We also work to provide psychosocial care for the traumatised in the aftermath of the bombing.


Training for health professionals

“My time there was very helpful to understand the general concept of child psychiatry, and to see how doctors manage the children and their families.Dr Alawie

Interpal works to support the improvement of the Palestinian health sector, and this includes providing vital training for health professionals in various specialties. We have funded training for doctors in child psychiatry, to ensure that effective expertise was available for Palestinian children suffering due to the occupation.  Dr Alawie was a beneficiary of this project and he visited the UK to study and train with doctors in Cardiff and Dundee. The experience was an eye opening one for him, as he spent time with patients and doctors, learning more about eating disorders, self-harming, depression and medications.

His training and ongoing professional development will mean that expertise will be passed along, and that he will be a champion for the future of mental health services for children. The experience is also a great opportunity for him to develop his knowledge and skills, something the occupation makes difficult.

Case study


Alla is a six year-old boy

Alla is a six year-old boy from Jabalia in northern Gaza. His left leg was injured as a result of a rocket that landed outside his house. We provided him with an adapted wheelchair to aid recovery. He was particularly happy with the toy truck he received. Despite Alla’s positive signs of recovery, such a traumatic event can have severe long-term consequences on the psychological well-being of a child and his physical trauma will also take time to heal and may never leave him. Many Palestinian children in Gaza suffer from On-going Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder for many years. His mother spoke to us of her fear when she found him injured and that she hopes he will make a full recovery.
