85 year old Aisha, and her brother Ahmed who is 73, live in a small yard in the Gaza Strip with no electricity or clean water supplies. They rely on neighbours to light their home with a makeshift electricity wire. After suffering multiple blood clots, Aisha’s mobility has severely deteriorated, and she has lost the sight in her left eye. Ahmed has a mental disability and, like Aisha, suffers from blocked blood vessels which affect his physical health. Interpal provides Aisha and Ahmed with a monthly sponsorship allowing them to cover their most basic needs and to celebrate Eid each year.
This International Women's Day, on March 8th 2019, host your own afternoon tea and support the legacy of extraordinary Palestinian women like the late medic, Razan al Najjar.
All funds raised will go towards our Razan al Najjar Scholarship Fund which provides training to even more paramedics in Gaza.
