In Gaza with approximately 2 million Palestinian population, humanitarian crisis has still been continuing since 2007 due to ongoing embargos. One million 300 thousand people still needs humanitarian aid due to the lack of sheltering, food and healthcare services.
In 2021, the attacks which had started in Jerusalem on May 7 have shifted to Gaza and deeply damaged its all health infrastructure. During those attacks, 230 Palestinians, including 65 children, have lost their lives and more than 1700 people have been injured. With our healthcare team that are already in the region, we are providing non-stop health services.
Yeryüzü Doktorları has provided financial support and equipment to two current physiotherapy and rehabilitation centers in 2014, the year when the Gaza Crisis took place. After determining that physical treatment services are the most necessary service in the region, as of June 2015, a new physical treatment and rehabilitation center was established and initiated services in Gaza.
Within the scope of Home Healthcare Services provided with Mobile Medical Teams, it is aimed to provide services at home for wounded people and the patients who are not able to leave their homes and whose condition is serious.
Yeryüzü Doktorları is the only association that can effectively provide home healthcare services among international organizations providing health services in Gaza.
Due to the events in Gaza and the humanitarian crisis, psychosocial support service has been initiated in order for the people to overcome their traumas. Within this context, Yeryüzü Doktorları has been conducting informative and supportive activities for the people of the region and intended groups.
