Medical mission

Al Ahli organises monthly Medical Missions. Buses travel out to the villages and refugee camps in the Gaza Strip and bring families back to the hospital in Gaza City. There they receive a full day of support from the hospital. They will be assessed and given treatment as needed as well as medicines and food supplements to take home with them. They also get a hot meal before being taken back to their home.  For just £12, you can help fund a Medical missions.
