Deliver a 40ft mobility aid container filled with 500 + life transforming aids to help the unprecedented number of disabled people suffering in Gaza, Palestine.


No words will really be able to capture the need for help in Gaza, Palestine, for the families of the 30,000 plus that have been killed or for the over 70,000 injured. Unfortunately these figures will only grow by the hour during the days of the blessed month of Ramadan.

Can you imagine being disabled in Gaza in normal circumstances. The number of disabled persons in Gaza, Palestine now will now be at an all time high due the indiscriminate bombing and shooting of civilians. They need our help now more than ever!

 

 

• 130,000 People in the Gaza Strip living with permanent disabilities before the war.

• 21% Households in Gaza with at least one person with a disability before the war.

• 9,000 Number of children injured during the war, many of whom have lost limbs.

 

 

The fear of having to survive this war with a disability haunts almost everyone in the Gaza Strip. A report released last month by Handicap International revealed that the injuries Palestinians have sustained during the onslaught include fractures, peripheral nerve injuries, amputations, spinal cord and brain injuries, and burns.

Many of the 9,000 children injured in Gaza have been grappling with the loss of one or more limbs, according to the UN Children’s Fund, UNICEF. Even before the war, 21 percent of Gaza’s households included at least one person with a disability

Before the current crisis, Wheels to Heal was one of the very few charities to have successfully delivered a mobility aid container to Gaza, Palestine - not once but twice in 2016 and 2018 respectively - during a phase when all major charities had given up helping in this way due to the barriers placed by the occupying force.

 

By supporting Wheels to Heal’s Gaza Mobility Aid Campaign this Ramadan 2024 you will helping these very people highlighted. By responding to this appeal you will also be supporting an entirely volunteer led charity recycling life transforming aids that would otherwise end up in landfill, and gifting them to people and institutes in desperate need who can only dream of such provisions.

 

 

Award winning with 100% donation policy, 125% if you include gift aid - consider donating your Zakat and Sadaqa this Ramadan to Wheels to Heal.

 

 

The 40ft container will be filled with over 500 aids such as wheelchairs, zimmer frames, rollators, walking sticks, commodes, hoists, care beds and much more. In Gaza we are working in conjunction with ANERA, https://www.anera.org, the most prominent Palestinian focused charity in the U.S.A. to help distribute these life transforming aids.

 

Since 1968, Anera has helped refugees and others hurt by conflicts in Palestine, Lebanon and Jordan live with purpose and hope.

 

Anera, which has no political or religious affiliation, works on the ground with partners in Palestine (West Bank and Gaza), Lebanon and Jordan. We mobilize resources for immediate emergency relief and for sustainable, long-term health, education, and economic development. Our staff serve in their communities, navigating the politics that constrict progress to get help where it’s needed most.

That’s how Anera received more than $171 million in support of programs in 2023 alone, and it’s how we will keep building better lives until hope finds its way in the Middle East.

The best form of charity is that which keeps giving - Sadaqa Jariya

 

Every cycle, every step, every movement by a disabled person is reward for you and your loved ones.
