Bread for the World


“I have witnessed firsthand the devastating impact of war on the innocent civilians trapped in Gaza in a recent medical mission organized by medglobal as part of the WHO EMT initiative.Seeing the deaths and injuries among children and other civilians, the collapse of the healthcare system, the increase in outbreaks, malnutrition, and heightened insecurity has deeply affected me. This should never have occurred. Our nation bears a moral responsibility to halt the bombardments, enhance humanitarian aid, and spearhead efforts to rally the regional and international community in rebuilding Gaza. The children of Gaza have endured far too much suffering, and they deserve a future as promising and healthy as that of our own children.” – Dr. Zaher Sahloul, President of MedGlobal.
