ACTNews, GAZA – The concern of the people of Karawang, Indonesia, for Palestine is manifested in the provision of an ambulance to support the medical facilities in Gaza, Palestine.
This ambulance is the 16th unit of ambulance provided by Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) in collaboration with various communities in Indonesia. It is planned to operate for 18 hours per day and benefit 1,050 patients in one month.
Said Mukaffiy from ACT's Global Humanity Response said the ambulance will not only transport patients to healthcare facilities but also transport healthcare workers to provide home care services.
"Gaza’s health system has been in severe difficulties. After the Israeli aggression, many hospitals and other healthcare facilities were damaged. In addition, the number of ambulances is not proportional to the number of Gazans," added Said, Tuesday (1/18/2022).
ACT Palestine Branch Manager Tahany Qasem said that the procurement of ambulance units in Gaza poses quite a challenge because of the closing of the Abaz Gate since the Israeli aggression in May 2021.
"Alhamdulillah, even though we were tested with these limitations, ACT continued its efforts and succeeded in bringing an ambulance to the people of Gaza," said Tahany.
