Amani El Assar, a nurse and patient educator, talks with a group of women waiting to be seen in the prenatal section of a clinic in Shejaiya, a neighborhood of Gaza City that was hard hit by the Israeli military during the 2014 war. The clinic is run by the Department of Service for Palestinian Refugees of the Near East Council of Churches, a member of the ACT Alliance, and funded in part by the Pontifical Mission for Palestine. This clinic has twice been destroyed by Israeli air strikes, but each time has been rebuilt by DSPR.
