The mission of Project Rozana continues into a new decade building bridges to better understanding between Israelis and Palestinians through health. Here is our recent news.
“Our recently-completed mission to Israel and Palestine showed us that Project Rozana’s message is resonating well in both communities. We’ve seen first-hand that bridging the divide between Israelis and Palestinians is not only possible but desirable. People on both sides want to build a better understanding through the health-related programs we support.”
COOPERATION IN TIMES OF CORONA
The new battlegrounds between the forces of good and evil are in the wards, surgical units and ICUs of hospitals in Israel and Palestine. Here the enemy is the disease, a fact now becoming apparent to front line workers who are in a desperate bid to save lives. It’s the health sector that is leading the fight and creating friendships that are vital if we are to survive.
SOLVING QUESTIONS OF LIFE AND DEATH
The impact of the coronavirus pandemic is severe and widespread. Many of our programs dedicated to the transport, training and treatment of Palestinians have been temporarily suspended. This hasn’t deterred our dedicated group of volunteer drivers who believe that when the going gets tough, it’s time to rise to the challenge.

LEADING REHABILITATION CENTRES JOIN FORCES
The ALYN Hospital in West Jerusalem and the Princess Basma Center in East Jerusalem have developed a pediatric training project that will build capacity in the Palestinian healthcare system. It’s a win-win as the latest cooperative project in the field of pediatric rehabilitation demonstrates.
MOBILE HEALTH CLINIC FEASIBILITY STUDY
Ensuring that women in remote West Bank villages receive appropriate health care is the latest initiative of Project Rozana. We’re supporting a feasibility study for a mobile health clinic service, which is considered to be one of the most effective ways to meet the needs of this particular group.
