(Jerusalem - 7/8/2018): The Qatar Red Crescent Society recently donated two state-of-the-art and fully equipped ambulances to PRCS’ branch in Jerusalem thus raising the number of ambulances operated by the branch to 16. This donation will help enhance emergency services offered to Palestinians in occupied Jerusalem and neighboring areas as well as to all Palestinians receiving treatment in Jerusalem hospitals.
The Society’s Emergency Medical Centre in occupied Jerusalem deals on average with 650 emergencies every month.

Ahmad Yihya Awad (28) carries out voluntary work for Palestine Red Crescent Society (PRCS) in Khan Younis in the Gaza Strip. Since the beginning of peaceful protests known as the March of Return a few months ago, Ahmad has been evacuating and assisting Palestinian casualties along Gaza’s eastern borders alongside other PRCS’ volunteers and emergency medical technicians (EMTs). What Ahmad sees in the line of duty causes him great distress, as well as mixed feeling of sadness, fear, satisfaction and happiness.
