Good news! Our investment of hard work over many hours has produced good fruit! Our most recent grant application on behalf of Nazareth Hospital was successful. Thanks be to God! The $500,000 award will come from USAID’s American Schools and Hospital’s Abroad (ASHA) program. All funds will go directly to improve and expand Nazareth Hospital’s Pediatric Services.
Nazareth Hospital EMMS is the only provider of Pediatric surgery services in Nazareth, Israel. Weekly, a team of its staff travels to at-risk communities in the West Bank. The team conducts medical tests for children in a field clinic and distributes first aid and hygiene supply kits.
Expanded Pediatric capabilities will serve the needs of Palestinian children and youth and open the door for Residency training in Pediatric Surgery and Medicine. A Pediatric residency program at Nazareth Hospital will foster professional partnerships between Palestinian doctors from the West Bank and their colleagues living in Israel.
CURE International will advise on the operational expansion of the Nazareth Hospital’s Pediatric Orthopedic surgical capabilities to reach marginalized children in the West Bank. CURE doctors have extensive experience in addressing Clubfoot and the international organization will dedicate competent staff and sufficient management time to ensure that the partnership with Nazareth Hospital EMMS is a success.
