Guaranteeing Healthcare

Projects we support:

Physicians for Human Rights

Each week, hundreds of Palestinians in remote West Bank villages receive medical treatment from some of Israel’s best trained medical specialists. Volunteering their time, they provide urgent and ongoing medical care, medication and support to Palestinian towns which otherwise may only have access to a GP every few weeks.

PHR also runs a daily medical clinic in Yafo for refugees, people seeking asylum and migrant workers who lack legal status and don’t have access to any medical insurance.

Between the two clinics, more than 16,000 people are given medical treatment and referrals they couldn’t otherwise receive.

The organisation also works with 250 Palestinians in Gaza each year to get them visas to access medical care in Israel or the West Bank. Gaza’s medical facilities are extremely limited, particularly for cancer treatment.

Physicians for Human Rights is also the only Israeli organisation able to provide humanitarian medical access to residents of Gaza.
