Recent events in Israel and Gaza have both shocked and horrified Members of the U.S. Priory, the St John Eye Hospital Group (SJEHG) staff, the patients we serve and the broader international community.
As a charity that has worked in the region for more than a century, we have one goal: saving sight, changing lives. Our job is to provide high-quality eye care to patients regardless of ethnicity, religion or ability to pay.
As always, we remain committed to our mission and our resolve to bring hope to the vulnerable of the Holy Land. The people affected are some of the most vulnerable in the world, and this war is creating a severe humanitarian crisis on a scale not previously seen in recent times. While we cannot predict what will unfold, what remains clear is that more people will suffer.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected in the Holy Land and across the world by this current conflict.
Our Gaza hospital has suffered damage but remains standing, though under severe strain. Support is needed now more than ever. If you wish to make a donation, please click on the “Donate” button below.
