GAZA CITY (Ma’an) – Qatar donated on Thursday $5 million to help provide Gaza hospitals with emergency retirements such as medicines, medical equipment and fuel for power generators.

The donation was announced by Muhammad al-Ummadi, who chairs a Qatari committee for the reconstruction of Gaza Strip.

Al-Ummadi, who is also deputy chairperson of the Qatari Foreign Ministry’s project department, said the donation came in response to Gaza’s call for help during the ongoing conflict.

He highlighted that the committee would use the money to buy medicines and medical requirements from the local market in Gaza and send them to public hospitals and ambulance services to help them cope with the ongoing situation.
