Friends of Palestine presents Dr El Farra from Gaza

Israel's Operation Cast Lead was described by a UN fact finding mission as “a deliberately disproportionate attack designed to punish, humiliate and terrorise a civilian population.” The 2008–09 assault claimed the lives of 1400 Palestinians and thrust the crisis in Gaza into the centre of the debate about the Israel/Palestine conflict.

The crippling siege continues to block access to much needed construction materials and denies people access
to vital healthcare. Life for the people of Gaza is punctuated by regular military incursions. Gaza has
come to be known as the world’s largest open-air prison.

Come and hear Dr Mona El Farra, a physician by training who has dedicated herself to developing community based programs that aim to improve health quality and link health services with cultural and recreation services across Gaza. Dr El Farra is Vice President and Health Chair of the Red Crescent Society for Gaza and Gaza Director of the Middle East Children's Alliance.
