Contract partner: UNDP / PAPP - United Nations Development Programme / Programme of Assistance to the Palestinian People Country: Palästinensische Gebiete Funding amount: € 357.000,00 Project start: 01.12.2006 End: 30.06.2008

Short Description:

Overall goal

Die palästinensische Regierung ist aufgrund der aktuellen, akuten Finanzsituation nicht in der Lage die Gehälter für Bedienstete im Gesundheitsbereich zu bezahlen, geschweige denn dringend notwendige Renovierungsarbeiten durchzuführen.

Im Rahmen dieses Projekts werden daher 10 öffentliche ambulante Kliniken im Gaza Streifen, sowie die Geburtsstation des Shifa Spitals in Gaza Stadt renoviert.

Die Arbeiten umfassen Wasser, Abwasser, Elektrizität und Mauerwerk, sowie eine Überholung der Generatoren die aufgrund der gekappten Stromversorgung in den letzten Monaten im Dauerbetrieb gestanden sind.

Zusätzlich werden durch das Projekt ca. 6.000 Arbeitstage geschaffen, die aufgrund der Arbeitslosigkeit von ca. 50% im Gaza Streifen eine wichtige Einkommensquelle darstellen.
