The launch of the project to build Khuza’a Gaza Trauma Centre 

7PM Wednesday 18 October- Town Hall – First Floor

Hosted by the mayor of Sheffield- Councillor Anne Murphy

“Khuza’a” is a town in the south of the Gaza Strip on the eastern border with Israel .  “Khuza’a ” was one of three areas which suffered a great deal of during the Israeli attack on the Gaza Strip. The Israeli Operation, “Protective Edge”, lasted for 51 days; resulted in the killing of more than 2000 Palestinians ; 11,000 injured , one third of them with permeant disability , and the destruction of more than 18,000 Palestinian homes.

100’s of civilians were killed in “Khuza’a” and large areas of the town were wiped out.  As a result, 1000’s of children are still traumatised and in need of psychological help.

 

Sheffield PSC, in cooperation with the Yemeni women association in Sheffield will construct a trauma support unit” in   Khuza’a  aimed at helping traumatised children in the area and beyond.  This project will be carried out with help from experts from  the Palestine Trauma Centre” which  is based in Gaza city.  The project will be run by one of our partner children centres; Never Stop Dreaming in Khan Younis.
