ISLAMABAD – The Pakistan Islamic Medical Association (PIMA) will soon send a medical mission to Gaza where people are suffering from the deficiency of food and medicine because they have been besieged for years.

The PIMA team of doctors and surgeons will go with medicines and give relief to those injured due in the fresh series of Israeli air attacks. PIMA President Dr Misbahul Aziz in a statement said that the oppressed people of Gaza are under continuous aggression by Israel particularly for the last 8 days.

A large number of women and children are among 135 martyred and 1000 injured during these attacks. PIMA is the only Pakistani organization who had sent its mission to Gaza in 2007, where they helped and trained local doctors in treatment of injured. In continuity to its tradition and commitment, PIMA will send its team to Gaza in next few days.  The team will be comprised of doctors and surgeons who will take medicines as well as food for the suffering people of Gaza.
