Denmark supports the establishment of a Red Cross field hospital in Gaza. The humanitarian situation in Gaza is catastrophic.

More than 34,900 civilians have lost their lives and more than 78,500 have been injured.

The difficult situation also means that infectious diseases spread faster than usual.

At the moment the health system is on the brink of collapse as a result of ongoing hostilities and a lack of security, supplies and personnel.

According to the UN, only 12 of Gaza’s approximately 36 hospitals are partially functional. That is why Denmark has supported the establishment of a field hospital in Gaza.

Denmark has supported the work of the International Red Cross in Palestine with DKK 58 million since the start of the conflict.

The Red Cross in Denmark contributes staff, tents for the deployed nurses and doctors at the field hospital as well as a water purification system that uses reverse osmosis to purify salt water into clean drinking water for the field hospital.
