  • Mission statement

    MAP has been reaching out to Palestinian communities, striving to deliver health and medical care to those worst affected by conflict, occupation and displacement.

    Today we have offices in the West Bank, Gaza, Jerusalem, Lebanon and London. With our extensive local knowledge and experience, we work closely with communities, hospitals, clinics and healthcare providers to coordinate care and medical aid even where there are severe restrictions on access.

    On our programme across Palestine
    MAP provides immediate medical aid to those in need at times of crisis, while also to developing local capacity and skills to ensure the long-term development of the Palestinian healthcare system.

    We are also committed to bearing witness to the impact of occupation, displacement and conflict on Palestinian health and well being, and campaign for the realisation of Palestinian rights to health and dignity.

    Accountability

    To promote trust and confidence among all our stakeholders in the work of Medical Aid for Palestinians, we focus on the efficient use of funds raised for our development and humanitarian aid programmes.
