On Saturday 21st the first few aid trucks finally entered Gaza from Egypt. Many credible organisations are collecting aid supplies to provide the Palestinians with urgently needed medical relief.
In light of this news, Hirbawi will be donating profits from every kufiya sold throughout this entire month to the Palestine American Medical Association (PAMA), and we wish to endorse their efforts to all those who may be interested in making any direct donations.

What is PAMA?
PAMA is an association made up of Palestinian doctors and other medical professionals that consistently sends their medical specialists into Gaza and the West Bank to treat Palestinians and Palestinian children especially. PAMA is regularly on the frontline providing urgent medical relief to clinics, hospitals, and Palestinian families. Their goal is to give Palestinians access to comprehensive and sustainable healthcare. They have worked diligently to help over 50,000 Palestinians since 2013, and hold a consistent record of allocating all funds donated to these medical relief efforts.
Emergency Appeal to Support Gaza Hospitals
PAMA is working on the ground to provide Gaza hospitals with much-needed medical supplies. Hospitals benefitting from these efforts include Al Shifa Medical complex, and other public hospitals that are working way beyond their capacity and consuming a huge number of supplies due to the high number of casualties.
PAMA is able to deliver donations at this time by procuring emergency medical supplies requested by hospitals in Gaza, from what is left in Gaza local suppliers’ warehouses. In addition to those efforts, PAMA is procuring medical supplies from neighbouring countries.
We kindly ask you to note, that while PAMA commit to delivering all of your donations, they currently can’t guarantee the timing, which is out of our control due to the ongoing crisis.
