May 16, 2018 – Yesterday, was the deadliest day in Gaza since 2014. According to the Ministry of Health, 58 Palestinians were killed, including six children and one health worker, and 2,771 injured after the use of live ammunition, rubber bullets and tear gas targeting demonstrators. Many health facilities in Gaza are facing a serious shortage of drugs and medical supplies as well as an overwhelming influx of injured patients. Cumulatively, these dynamics have already harmed Gaza’s health system and continue to threaten the well-being of its patients. Health services in Gaza are already extremely limited due to chronic shortages of medicines, medical disposables, and inadequate supplies of electricity and fuel for emergency generators in hospitals. In response to increasing health needs, Mercy Without Limits has quickly responded to help local teams treat the injured through the provision of essential medical supplies. In partnership with World Health Organization, Mercy Without Limits sent a medical container equipped with medical supplies and medicine to meet emergency medical needs.
