GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Arab doctors' union launched a campaign on Tuesday to assist the Somali people.

The campaign is called "From Gaza hand in hand to save the children of Somalia" and will last throughout the holy month of Ramadan.

"The campaign aimed to demonstrate the extent of physical cohesion between besieged Gaza and Somalia and that the Palestinian people are capable to support and stand with the Somali people," Ma'an's correspondent in Gaza Abdul Rahman Haddad said.

Haddad said cash donations would be transferred to the office of the union in Cairo, which would purchase food and medicine and send it to the victims in Somalia.

He added that each individual needed about $10 to save his or her life.

He pointed out that that the Arab doctors' union also opened bank accounts in the West Bank and Gaza Strip to facilitate voluntary contributions to the Somali people.
