Gaza hospitals receive urgent medical supplies

Jan. 11, 2012 1:36 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 11, 2012 9:06 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Ministry of Health in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday received medical supplies from the Palestinian Authority for dialysis treatment, a spokesman said.

The supplies were delivered by the International Committee of the Red Cross after intense efforts by the Gaza ministry together with international organizations, ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qidra said.

The supplies included 49 products for dialysis treatment.

There are over 450 patients in the Gaza Strip requiring dialysis treatment for kidney failure, al-Qidra told Ma'an, including 15 children.

The supplies will be sufficient to provide treatment to those patients for a period of roughly five weeks.

Al-Qidra urged the Palestinian Authority to send regular medical supplies to the coastal enclave and stop "last minute policies" regarding health issues.
