PROJECT ROZANA

An international initiative raising funds for the transport and treatment of critically-ill children from the West Bank and Gaza in Israeli hospitals.

Also funding the training of Palestinian doctors, nurses and therapists in Israel, to improve and expand healthcare in Palestinian communities.

FIRST-EVER PAEDIATRIC WORKSHOP

Four doctors from Iraq, who treated children during the fight to liberate Mosul from ISIS, were among 22 doctors and nurses who attended the first workshop on paediatric emergency medicine at Hadassah Hospital, Jerusalem.

The workshop objectives were…

  • ‘Hands-on’ training based on advanced simulations using ‘smart’ mannequins.
  • Creation of a network of Palestinian and Israeli healthcare professionals, working together.
  • An opportunity for the younger participants to understand more about paediatric emergency medicine, encouraging formal sub-specialisation training.

LATEST NEWS

PEACE IS COMING, BUT IT’S UNDER THE RADAR

The respected newspaper, The Australian, ran an article by Ron Finkel AM. He explains the power of “quiet diplomacy” and Project Rozana’s role in building bridges between Israelis and Palestinians.

IF THERE WERE JUST ONE MORE DALIA, THERE WOULD BE PEACE BY NOW

In her job as the Civil Administration’s health coordinator, Dalia Bassa wasn’t supposed to save the lives of hundreds of Palestinian children, but she has and does.

STATEMENT IN RELATION TO THE STATUS OF JERUSALEM

What we are witnessing these days on the ground in Israel, the West Bank and Gaza in relation to the status of Jerusalem, must not be allowed to interfere with the mission of Project Rozana.

ROAD TO RECOVERY GOES WEST BANK

A full-time co-ordinator Naeem Al Bayda, is appointed in Gaza, helping Palestinians get to border crossings. Then Israeli volunteers transport them to the hospitals.

Read about this, and Project Rozana’s story so far (from Australian Board member, Michael Krape). It details our expanding impact and reach around the world.

A LIFELINE FOR A STRUGGLING FAMILY

Project Rozana steps in to enable gender surgery for a young Palestinian, at Hadassah Hospital Ein Kerem in Jerusalem. Many costs were absorbed and staff donated their time. But there was still a funding shortfall of US$5,000 which we covered. The initiative was from Dr Guy Hidash, a senior paediatric urologist (pictured here).

A GLOBAL ENTERPRISE

In 2013, Project Rozana entered the world as an initiative to use Israeli excellence in healthcare, to benefit the Palestinian community.

The idea has quickly gained traction as people recognise that healthcare can build bridges to peaceful coexistence between Israelis and Palestinians. It is the only area of civil society where Israelis and Palestinians meet on such a broad scale and on equal terms through mutual respect.

Project Rozana is a child of its time, invested in the wisdom of people globally. Today, this initiative, which emerged from the leadership of Hadassah Australia, has been embraced by affiliates in the United States, Canada, Israel and across the Palestinian Territories.

It only has one agenda, without regard to politics, national identity, gender, sexual orientation or religious belief. This is to provide the Palestinian community with the best training and treatment available in Israel. So Palestinian society can build its own institutional capacity, to provide world-first healthcare for its people.

Project Rozana is gaining international momentum as people recognise that a change to the status quo is necessary, achievable and morally correct.
