The Palestinian Authority (PA) dispatched medical equipment to health centers run by the Palestinian Red Crescent Organization in war-torn Syria.
The procured materials include an oxygen plant, an advanced anesthesia machine for the surgery unit, and an arc x-ray device.
Medical staff and structures in war-torn Syria have been permanently attacked by the warring parties. Dozens of doctors, pharmacists, and paramedics have been pronounced dead in the raging warfare and dozens more have been forcibly disappeared by the Syrian regime.
After ten years of conflict, Palestine refugees continue to be one of the most vulnerable groups in Syria with immense humanitarian needs.
Survival for the majority of Palestinian families in war-stricken Syria has largely hinged on relief assistance. The vast majority of families have been living below the poverty line and denied access to vital services, most notably healthcare.
