The Cause: Equipping a new Maternity Ward in Gaza

The Al-Shifa Hospital in the Gaza Strip is the only hospital that provides maternity services in the North and Gaza governorates.

In 2019, admissions to gynaecology and maternity wards reached 28,551, causing the hospital to struggle with patients and new cases. Due to this huge need, a new hospital wing was constructed in 2020, which includes a maternity unit. Sadly the the Ministry is currently unable to purchase the necessary equipment for this new maternity unit.

The ongoing blockage and implications of the COVID-19 pandemic have further weakened the healthcare system.

Islamic Relief is working to enhance specialised health services and to provide the new maternity department with urgent equipment, machines and furniture to ensure maternity services can be run at full capacity.

The equipment that will be provided from this project includes new inpatient beds, ECG machines, pulse oximeters, ultrasound technology, examination beds, nursing trollies, medication cabinets and wheelchairs.

Sign up to iCycle to Salah and help save lives of mothers and babies in Gaza.

Fundraising Ideas

Smarties: Buy 20 tubes of Smarties and give them to 20 of your friends. Your one condition? Once they’ve enjoyed the Smarties, they return the tubes back to you filled with as many £1 coins as they can collect in a week. You’d be surprised how much you can raise using this tactic!

Bake Sale: A true classic. How about adding a theme to your fundraiser depending on the cause you’re raising for? E.g. a blue theme if you’re fundraising to provide clean water. Or you could really go for it, sell other homemade delights alongside your delicious baked goods like milkshakes, smoothies or classic desserts (trifle, cake & custard etc.).

Car Wash: Probably the most fun thing you could do, and all you need is water, a bucket, a sponge and some car shampoo. You could do this at your school or workplace, or you could even ask a local business to let you use their grounds/car park. Try make it more interesting by doing it in fancy dress and get your family and friends in on all the fun!
