The number of innocent civilians killed in Gaza has been growing since October 7.
The neutrality of medical facilities and refugee camps has not been respected.
We know that all medical facilities in the country are on edge due to the huge influx of wounded civilians (largely relocated from other territories) and it’s reported that their emergency rooms and intensive care units are overloaded and unable to operate due to lack of supplies.
We have asked how the civilian population can be helped by supporting emergency medical assistance to the hospitals and associations that are operating ensuring absolute priority for civilian victims. It is estimated that more than 100,000 people already receiving treatment can no longer receive care.
We believe that the humanitarian emergency in the Gaza Strip is the most serious right now. Here already more than 400,000 people are left without water and basic services, an estimated 1.4 million people are displaced, more than 8,500 are dead (60% of whom are women and children) and nearly 10,000 are seriously injured without health care.
For this reason, we have identified a number of medical facilities operating in the Gaza Strip that we would like to support as a priority over aid interventions:
Medical aid for Palestinian MAP
Al-Awda Hospital – MSF Doctors Without Borders
Beit Lahia Indonesian Hospital
Al Shifa Hospital
These are emergency medical facilities that ensure absolute priority for civilian victims and medical staff who continue to work on the ground despite the fact that the risks are now very high.
We have mobilized the world of photography to support the PRINTS FOR GAZA campaign with a new call to action that will unfold with these two concrete initiatives:
1) donating an open edition image, purchasable online at a cost of 100 euros, 100% of the proceeds of which will be donated to support the identified health and humanitarian assistance network, excluding fine art printing and shipping costs. Images will be available for purchase online starting Nov. 8;
2) creating photo portraits immediately post-produced and printed in A4 – A3 – A2 format on fine art paper at a cost of 120 euros. 50% of the proceeds will be donated by the campaign, the remaining part excluding fine art printing costs, will go to the photographer chosen for their portrait.
The campaign will be active from Nov. 8 to Dec. 21 online and at the spaces at Via Tortona 31 (Spazio Crea), booking your slot online. The campaign launch event will be held in Milan at Casa degli Artisti 8/11 and in Rome at Conteporary Cluster on 18/11.
