Cancer in children is relatively rare, in most western nations the rate of diagnosis each year is in the range of 140 – 150 cases per million children.  In the developed world over 70% of children who suffer from cancer are cured.

However the situation is not so positive for Palestine’s children. There are no adequate paediatric cancer services in all of Gaza.  This means that children and their parents must travel to Israel, Jordan or East Jerusalem in order to obtain treatment (location of treatment is dependent on Ministry of Health referrals and the availability of beds).

This problem is further compounded by high levels of unemployment and poverty.

Deir El Balah is Gaza’s smallest refugee camp, with a population of 20,500 of whom 38% are children.  We currently have 7 small children from Deir El Balah who are suffering from cancer and require sponsorship.  Photos & Details of Kids needing sponsorship .

The objective of this sponsorship campaign is to provide funding needed for them to travel to receive cancer treatment.

Sponsorship details:

Payment:

  • Required amount $50 per month.
  • Sponsorship is on a yearly basis, and can be renewed at the end of the year
  • Can be paid by credit card, online or transfer, for a full year or as a monthly donor.

Use:

Reporting:

In the event that sponsorship is no longer required for a specific child, the child’s sponsor will be contacted to see if they’d like to sponsor another child.

█ Note from Occupied Palestine: Within ONE day after the appeal of Maree for the Children of Gaza with Cancer, all children found a sponsor! I would like to thank everyone who made this relief possible, may Allah Subhana wa Ta’ala reward you. Ameen.

On the website of the PCRF their progress can be followed and also donations can be made. New “projects” coming along all the time. Also there is a possibility to sponsor PCRF’s work by buying PCRF shirts, badges and more. Please stay generous…for the children of Gaza.
