Bus programme 2021-2022

Here are some testimonials from students on how they feel about this programme:

“I’m writing this to witness the incredible services that are provided by the FQMS bus support to IUG medical students. I am sure without the FQMS bus many of the students will not be able to reach our main training hospital which is in the south of Gaza Strip mainly because of financial problems. Without the FQMS bus most of us will take 3 transport vehicles to reach the hospital that will be unaffordable, costly, and mostly will not reach in time. Fortunately, now, we have this method of transportation that is convenient and always drives us on time. We are grateful to the FQMS for supporting and providing the necessary fund do the bus. We also appreciate Dr Anwar’s and the teaching assistant effort for organizing the work of the bus. We hope this facility will be still available in the next years.” Israa Abu Alqare – 4th-year students’ representative

“Many thanks for the FQMS efforts. As you know, we go to Khan Younis every day to attend our medical training sessions at the European Gaza Hospital. The trip is an hour-drive from where we live, and we usually take the bus provided by the FQMS to the faculty of medicine to reach our destination. We are really thankful for this transportation method as it helps us reach our destination quickly without having to endure the hardship of finding taxis to take us to our destination as it is quite hard especially for far-away areas like the hospital’s location, that will be unaffordable especially in Gaza because of the financial difficulties. The bus is also very helpful especially when it comes to avoiding waiting for transportations in the winter under the rain and late arrivals which can be a hassle. Finally, we are grateful to FQMS for the presence of the bus as it is blessing.” Loay Kanou, Representative of medical students,
