Assalamualaykum waRahmatullahi waBarakatuhu

Virgin Money Giving is supporting Human Aid by sending 10 Medical Delegates to assist the Al Shifa Hospital in Gaza (where Dr Mads Gilbert worked) with emergency medical equipment.

Imagine all the thousands of people who were injured severely and still awaiting medical attention, plus injuries dont just go away. Our brothers need us more than ever now as winter approaches.

May Allah bless you!

Human Aid runs a 100% donation policy which means their staff wont be paid with your money or their hotel/flights.
