These are patients who have cornea disease, and their only solution is a corneal transplant

We are fundraising to help young Palestinian men and women regain their sight

Cost per beneficiary: The cost is about $2000 per patient including purchasing the cornea tissue from US eye banks and shipping it to Gaza on the day of surgery.

PAMA is collaborating with Public Aid Hospitals in Gaza to launch a corneal transplant project for patients with corneal disease. Through your donation, patients who have lost sight from disease or injury can undergo a corneal transplant and restore their vision. The people of Gaza are suffering severe financial hardship and can not afford these costly operations. Public Aid Hospitals group has successfully implanted 70 corneas over the last several years. Unfortunately, their efforts came to a halt due to lack of funding.

PAMA has taken the initiative to raise funds in order to keep this project going. By the end of 2018, we secured funds for 70 corneal transplants through your generous donations and pledges, however, 2000 more patients are still waiting for their chance. Each corneal mission benefits 5 patients, and so far, we have completed 7 missions, enabling 35 young men and women to see again. Your donation will benefit a father, mother, child, or university student.

Please join our efforts to bring light to those who have lost their vision.

*PAMA will do its best to use your donation toward the project of your choice, however, in certain cases, PAMA may use it where it is needed most.
