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).

PROJECT ROZANA USA SECURES US$170,000 TO FUND…
  • Our West Bank expansion program for Road to Recovery.
  • A medical students rotation program.
  • And a proposed Project Rozana speaking and fundraising tour of NY, Washington, Toronto, Chicago, San Francisco and LA, with eminent Israeli and Palestinian medical specialists

PROJECT ROZANA CANADA FILES AN APPLICATION FOR CHARITABLE STATUS

This is hoped for in 2018. Canada’s committee is pushing ahead with fundraising efforts by developing important relationships with the Anglican Church (via the Primates World Development Fund) and World Vision Canada. In terms of the latter, a joint submission is being prepared for the Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs. Initiatives proposed include funding training programs for Palestinian undergraduates and physicians in Israeli hospitals.

PROGRESS REPORT, BINATIONAL SCHOOL OF PSYCHOTHERAPY

At the end of the first full year of training, Hadassah Medical Organization presented for World Vision, a detailed summary of activities in 2016/7. And looking forward to year two.

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.
