Trauma Centre for Children in Gaza


    A lifetime of violence continues to takes its toll on Gaza's children. Those who are ten years old have already experienced wars in 2008 and 2009, an invasion in 2012, and unparalleled destruction in 2014. This is all in addition to a military siege that continues to suffocate them with every passing year.

    Like in Syria, Ummah Welfare Trust continues to stand alongside Gaza's children. Alhamdulillah, the charity has constructed a two-storey trauma centre to rehabilitate and care for the thousands of aggrieved children here.

    Thanks to you, the centre provides psychological support, counselling, recreational activities and meals to over 100 children and adolescents. A counsellor, six psychologists and two teachers work with the children, ensuring that they are given best chance to succeed in Gaza's difficult environment.

    'Mercy is only removed from the one who is destined for wretchedness.'
    [Al Adab al Mufrad Bukhari]

    The centre, though now up and running, has annual running costs will be approximately £50,000 per year to ensure that children get the best care.

    Please support this centre and help heal the scars that have been inflicted on our young brothers and sisters. You can donate Sadaqah and Lillah for this appeal.
