Episcopal Bishops Ask US President Barack Obama For Continuous help To Gaza Strip’s Al Ahli Hospital
A team of Episcopal bishops is requesting US President Barack Obama to support promise that a United Nations agency continues to help and aid a diocese-run healthcare facility in the Gaza Strip.
On Wednesday 6th June letter of correspondence, the 102 bishops request the President Barack Obama to help financing for Gaza Strip‘s Al Ahli Medical center from the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees. The mail claims capital was cut-off in May, although an UNRWA official stated that a ultimate final decision hasn’t been adapted.
The Al Ahli Hospital, functions by the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem, “is the only service of its type in the Gaza Strip that is not operated by the Hamas govt and therefore, it is ready to give proper care without having any external disturbance or governmental calculation,” the letter states.
Al Ahli’s 120 fellow member employees serves 4,800 inpatients and 42,000 out patients each year, the majority of whom are Islamic. Prior to now, UNRWA gave almost $1 million of the hospital’s yearly $2.4 million running budget.
Underneath U.N. policies, nonprofit organizations quote for finances, as well as this yr, a number of new agencies qualify to bid. UNRWA is within the course of action of examining these offers, it is therefore undetermined in respect of whether Al Ahli Hospital continues to get finances, the UNRWA official stated.
He also bundled that UNRWA has worked well close with the church and likes its solutions throughout the recent years.
