Update from St Luke's Hospital, Nablus

We are delighted to report that we have been able to provide funding for St Luke's Hospital to extend their mobile programme to a second group villages, Bet Furik and Bet Dajan.

St Luke’s Hospital has been providing health care services to the population of Nablus in the West Bank for over 100 years. Recognizing that many villagers living in the surrounding areas were finding it difficult to reach the hospital, St Luke's started to offer mobile health services to the villages of Madama, Burin, and ‘Asira Al-Qibliya. These villages are located near the settlement of Yitzhar and many villagers have become afraid to travel on the roads in order to reach Nablus. 
 
St Luke's has carried out weekly visits to Madama Clinic using a mobile clinic vehicle and ambulance funded by Embrace the Middle East. During these visits, St Luke’s personnel provide much-needed services and assessments to people, regardless of gender, ethnic, religious, or political status, or their ability to pay.
 
The majority of people they treat are the elderly, who either suffer from or are at risk of developing hypertension and diabetes, and pregnant women and their infants.
