Palestinian Information Centre  -  23 June 2012

Cairo, (PIC)– The Emergency Relief Committee of the Arab Doctors Union has sent a new shipment of children’s therapeutic milk, needed for feeding and treating children, to the Gaza Strip on Friday.

The shipment fell in line with the ADU project to provide Palestinian children with milk, which has been launched in May and will continue until August in cooperation with an Egyptian charity group.

The Relief Committee said in a statement that the project aims at contributing in the improvement of the health status of newborn babies who refuse breastfeeding or the local baby formula, in addition to “easing the economic burden on the poor families that are unable to purchase such expensive kind of milk.”

The Committee had also sent a shipment of medicines and medical supplies costing one million U.S. dollars to the Gaza Strip last week in cooperation with Islamic Relief organization.
