Because of the desperate economic conditions on the West Bank and in Gaza it is essential that we recruit as much support for the Medical School from outside the Occupied Territories as is possible. 

To be of significant assistance to the school we need to raise at least £200,000 per year. 


Our funds come from:

1. Membership subscriptions

2. Individual donations

3. Grants from charitable trusts and companies

4. Fundraising events


Through the Gift Aid Scheme we reclaim for the charity such sums as have been paid on donations made by UK taxpayers. For standard rate taxpayers this increases the value of their donations by 25%.
