Caritas Jerusalem has completed the distribution of 23 first aid kits to qualified doctors according to a plan formulated in partnership with the Palestinian Ministry of Health (PMOH). Additional requests have been received for ten (10) more of these kits.
Due to the continued bombardment of Gaza, the limited access to medical care and the need to address urgent medical situations through out Gaza, Caritas Jerusalem has provided these kits to allow physicians living in areas where no hospitals are present to offer on-the-spot emergency medical care to the injured in Gaza.

This support has been made possible due to the support of numerous Caritas partner organizations who have supported Caritas Jerusalem's Special Operations Appeal (SOA) "Emergency Support for Palestine." So far Caritas partners from Australia, Belgium Canada, England, Japan, Spain, Luxembourg, Italy, Ireland, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Holland and France as well as other organizations such as Aid to the Church in Need from Germany have committed to support this appeal. This appeal was issued in May for almost 1.5 million USD.
Caritas Jerusalem urges for an immediate cessation of violence in Gaza and requests that all parties end attacks and counter attacks so that efforts to restore order, treat the injured and get aid to those in need can take place. Killing, aggression, hostage taking and efforts to harm a civilian population are wrong and must be condemned in the strongest terms with a view to end them immediately.
Please contact your religious leaders and elected representatives and demand from them to act to ensure that the situation in Palestine, Israel and Lebanon not be allowed to spiral out of control and descend into a deeper abyss of despair, hopelessness and violence. Gaza particularly needs to see an end to violence.
