MAKE A DIFFERENCE

NORWAC is a humanitarian organization that works with health-related projects in the Middle East.

AKUTT NØD

Lidelsene i Gaza er større enn noen gang. I 1948 ble 750 000 palestinere drevet på flukt. Nå i 2023 blir 1,4 millioner utsatt for folkerettsstridig tvangsfordrivning under bomberegn i en krigssone. Behovene for helsehjelp er enorme.

NORWAC har i 40 år arbeidet med helsehjelp i Palestina og for palestinske flykninger i Midtøsten.

EMT Team in GAZA

A new Emergency Medical Team (EMT) has successfully entered Gaza to provide critical assistance. The team comprises orthopedists Geir Stray Andreassen and Odd Arild Ågedal, anesthesiologist Fadi Kabbouli, and OR nurse Alice Skår.

A talk with the midwives

“We were in contact with our colleagues in Gaza the first 3 weeks after the war in Gaza started, but now we have lost contact with them. We are very worried. Many of our friends and colleagues live in Beit Hanoun and have had to flee south with their families. We do not have direct information about the situation for women and children other than from the news and information we have from other wars and crisis.”
