Medical Aid for Palestinians - UK
Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP) is a UK charity providing support to the health and medical needs of Palestinians living under occupation in Gaza and the West Bank, to refugees in Lebanon and to other vulnerable communities in the region. MAP recognises that access to healthcare is the prime component of the fundamental human right to health. This right is compromised by the occupation, the ongoing conflict and the lack of a just political solution to the crisis. Established in 1984 in the aftermath of the Sabra and Shatila massacres, today MAP helps by working in partnership with local organisations to deliver a range of health and medical care to those affected.
Established in 1993, Muslim Hands is an international NGO working in over forty countries worldwide to help those affected by natural disasters, conflict and poverty.
We are a UK Registered Charity (No. 1105056) and a signatory to the Code of Conduct for the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement. Muslim Hands' trustees, who are all volunteers, form the governing body of Muslim Hands and are legally responsible for all of the organisation's activities under the Charities Act.
Medico International struggles for the human right to the best possible access to good health. In doing so we support local partners, primarily in Africa, Asia and Latin America, in their endeavors to create the economic, social and cultural conditions which allow each person to attain the highest health standard possible. In particular Medico stands by those who are in situations of emergency and in poverty, including refugees and the victims of war.
