QRCS provides medical equipment to protect 24,000 students in Gaza
In cooperation with the Ministry of Education and Higher Education in Gaza, Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) has distributed 77 digital thermometers to 44 public schools in the blockade’s five governorates, with a view to controlling the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) and ensuring a safe school environment for students and teachers. Eng. Mohamed Nassar, Director of Projects Department at the Ministry of Education and Higher Education, said the contribution of QRCS met the needs of the ministry to ensure a safe educational process, by securing all the materials to protect the safety of staff and students at public schools. According to him, 24,000 boys and girls are being checked with the new thermometers. He valued QRCS’s constant efforts to help the Palestinian people. Dr. Akram Nassar, Director of QRCS’s representation mission in Gaza, highlighted their support to Gaza’s schools, as an emergency response to the Coronavirus pandemic, keeping the students safe as they attend their schools. “We have ongoing health projects to alleviate the impact of difficult circumstances imposed by the virus,” said Dr. Nassar. “There is a project to provide emergency Coronavirus control supplies totaling $95,000 in value. It involved procuring 800 swab kits, sanitizers, gloves, and medical consumables for the Ministry of Health”. “Also, 13,000 liters of disinfectants (sodium hypochlorite), shoes, and leather gloves were delivered to the Municipality of Gaza, in order to protect its workers,” he added.
