Gaza Clinic Laurence Geai
We provide medical and psychological assistance to people affected by the ongoing conflict in Palestine.

During the Great March of Return protests in Gaza in 2018 and 2019, thousands of people were shot – mostly in the legs – by the Israeli army, resulting in often horrific and complex injuries. Our teams provide surgical and post-operative care, including rehabilitation and mental health support, to people who were injured during the protests.

Our patients have been exposed to critical events, such as witnessing violence, raids on their homes, arrests and deaths of family members, and consequently, they have developed anxiety, stress and sleeping problems. We run mental health programmes in Hebron, Nablus, Qalqilya and Tubas offering psychological and social support to victims of political violence.

In our burns and trauma centres in the Gaza Strip, we treat patients, most of them children, the majority of them having burns from domestic accidents.

Our teams are currently responding to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic in the country.

Treating complex gunshot wounds in Gaza - an overwhelming challenge

Gaza

What future for the thousands shot in March of Return protests?

Ana Nery, medical coordinator for Palestine, tells us about the overwhelming challenge of treating patients shot by the Israeli forces during the March of Return protests which began in March 2018 at the border fence in Gaza.

Our teams have seen over 3,000 people in its clinics and continues to follow a massive cohort of patients. Many are unable to find proper treatment for their wounds and risk developing bone infections which, without proper treatment, could result in amputation.

The invisible scars of Palestinians in the West Bank

The Israeli occupation and political in-fighting that have lasted for so many years have profoundly affected, both directly and indirectly, the physical and mental health of Palestinians.

In the West Bank, our teams of social workers, psychologists and psychiatrists are working to support and restore the mental health of a people shattered by many years of occupation, violence and restrictions..
