GAZA, PALESTINE — Since the Israeli attack on Gaza on October 7, 2023, tens of thousands of Palestinians have been martyred, while thousands were severely injured. The situation is getting worse as the supply of medicines and medical equipment is decreasing. Northern Gaza has been experiencing a difficult time for more than four months. Thousands of people have been killed, wounded and missing bodies.

The malnutrition and lack of medical assistance for the people who are still there make the situation even more difficult. There are no medicines, no medical teams, no hospitals, and no food. However, alhamdulillah, Dompet Dhuafa’s medical services in Palestine managed to help the wounded who could not come to the hospital, providing medicine for those who need it, especially chronic diseases.
