DEHRADUN: According to Anadolu, hundreds of doctors from Pakistan have offered their services to help Gaza overburdened medical facilities.
According to sources, Pakistani humanitarian organizations are working with their counterparts in Turkey and Egypt to assist the plight of the Palestinian people, since Pakistani nationals find it difficult to travel to the besieged city because of their country’s lack of diplomatic ties with Tel Aviv.
However, officials from important Pakistani medical associations. Such as the Pakistan Medical Association and the Pakistan Islamic Medical Association, have disclosed that a large number of physicians, surgeons, anesthetists, and paramedics have volunteered to work in the infiltrated medical facilities in the event that they are allowed entry into Gaza.
This comes after an Israeli attack on Gaza’s Al-Ahli Baptist Hospital claimed the lives of over 500 people, including patients, paramedics, and children.
In addition, a number of non-governmental organizations in Pakistan, including the Al-Khidmat Foundation, Sailani Welfare Trust, and Baitussalam Trust, are proactively working with Turkish and Egyptian relief organizations to investigate potential means of offering aid to Gaza that is under siege.
As for the relief supplies, they have already given to the Turkish partners in the sum of Rs100 million ($357,453). With an additional pledge of Rs400 million ($1.42 million), according to Waqas Anjum Jafri, Secretary-General of the Al-Khidmat Foundation.
“As soon as the humanitarian corridor is establish. Our trained disaster management teams and doctors, along with relief assistance, are ready to go to Gaza,” he added.
The conflict, initiated by Hamas’ Operation Al-Aqsa Flood on October 7, has resulted in a significant toll on both sides, with over 3,448 Palestinians killed in Israeli attacks on Gaza and more than 1,400 casualties in Israel.
