‘I lift up my eyes to the hills’
Fundraising Drive for Al Ahli Hospital, Gaza
Organised by the Dublin and Glendalough Diocesan Council for Mission
Update: we’ve raised just €14,000!
Thank you to all our walkers and to everyone who donated!
The final fundraising total will be announced on 14 June!
In recent years the United Dioceses of Dublin and Glendalough have provide support and respond to urgent needs of the Al Ahli Hospital, an Anglican–run hospital in Gaza city, operated by our partner Diocese of Jerusalem and the Middle East. The hospital provides treatment for all people of Gaza without discrimination on religious, gender, social or political grounds. The hospital and its staff again find themselves under extreme pressure in recent days.
Archbishop Hosam Naoum has issued an urgent plea for support to enable the hospital to obtain emergency medical supplies, medicines and fuel for the hospital’s generators.
