Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) first started working in Gaza in 1989 and has been present continuously since 2000.

We run five clinics and two inpatient departments there, and our three surgical teams offer care to people suffering from trauma and burns. The vast majority of our trauma patients are people who were shot by the Israeli army during protests.

MSF has treated 4,600 of the more than 7,600 people shot since 30 March 2018. As well as looking after their physical needs, we offer patients psychosocial support in our clinics and hospitals to deal with any mental health issues they may have. We also support them and their families to help ensure treatment is successfully completed.

These photos follow Rania Samour, one of our counsellors, at work in an outpatient clinic on a day in October 2019.
