Gift of the Givers Team on the Ground in Gaza

As the death toll rises rapidly on the Gaza-Israeli border and the casualties approach 3000, Gift of the Givers increases it's intervention, expanding medical teams (we are 25m from the border and are the first responders for the injured before patients are moved to the Palestinian Ministry of Health facilities), we pay for treatment for the injured at private hospitals, provide medical equipment and essential supplies, distribute wheelchairs and crutches and even supply food parcels to families whose bread winners have been compromised. Our teams have been teargassed by Israeli forces, three have been injured. The resolve to serve in innovative ways continues. We use a donkey cart as an ambulance as ambulances are deliberately targeted.
