Addressing the staggering healthcare needs in Gaza

The Gaza Strip’s health infrastructure is devastated by the ongoing conflict and struggles to provide adequate services to Palestinians in need of quality medical care.

Since 2009, IMANA’s been providing critical healthcare services to Palestinians from plastic/reconstructive surgeries to medicines and supplies, including a Cardiopulmonary Bypass machine.

Through our Disaster Relief campaign, we are committed to reaching the most vulnerable Palestinian children who need access to eye care services. Through this campaign, we’re supporting a series of surgical procedures and comprehensive ophthalmic examinations in local hospitals that average $300 per case. With your generous support, you are giving more than just vision to a child in need, you’re allowing them an opportunity to learn and grow alongside their peers and live life to the fullest.
