PMRS: “52% of Gaza Children Suffer From Malnutrition”
A study conducted by the Palestinian Medical Relief Society (PMRS) revealed that 52% of the children in Gaza suffer from anaemia, and severe deficiency in phosphor, calcium and zinc, while a significant number of children suffer from infections in their respiratory systems.
The statement came during a ceremony marking the end of the first phase of a project meant to evaluate the psychological conditions of children in the Gaza Strip. The project is conducted with the cooperation of a humanitarian society in Italy.
The International Middle East Media Center is running an URGENT online fundraising campaign.
