Emergency Support For Gaza

The EFE Network began its first programs in Gaza in 2006. With a dedicated team on the ground, we've supported nearly 9,000 graduates over the years.  During this time of crisis, our work continues.

Now is a time of critical need.

See how our team members in Gaza are working alongside our partners on the ground to ensure those who need immediate care find support:

Emergency First Aid Training

Youth in this training are getting equipped with the essential skills and knowledge needed to effectively respond to medical emergencies.

Beyond basic first aid skills, they are learning how to assess situations and how to care for burns, control bleeding, treat head and neck injuries, give CPR to infants and adults, and ways to support individuals with diabetes or low blood sugar.
