CARE's response to the 2014 Gaza crisis

CARE and its partner organization, Palestine Medical Relief Society (PMRS), visit local communities with four mobile health teams seeing more than 300 patients per day, providing basic health care to people living in affected communities by the ongoing violence. As of August 20, the teams had seen more 6800 patients, among them 3472 children and 159 pregnant women. 2000 households will receive hygiene kits. The health teams include medical staff and a psychosocial worker to help traumatized families, and will focus in particular on women’s health needs, particularly pre- and post-natal care for pregnant women and new mothers with infants. CARE’s long-term work with PMRS focuses on increasing women’s participation in improving community health.

 


CARE works in the five governorates in Gaza: North Gaza, Gaza city, Deir Al Balah, Khan Younis, and Rafah. Programs promote economic empowerment, primarily focusing on women and youth. CARE has temporarily suspended normal operations in Gaza, and will recommence once the security situation allows.
