Working with the Palestinian Blood Bank, Birzeit University launched a blood donation campaign on August 6, 2014. The blood was distributed to injured residents in Gaza hospitals after the month-long Israeli operation there.

University students and staff participated in the campaign, which aims to support Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. Hospitals there are facing an acute shortage of blood as a result of the high number of casualties during the Israeli aggression.

Vice-President for Advancement Ghassan Khatib said that the campaign is “the least we can do to support our people in the Gaza Strip facing the war machine and Israeli repression that has caused thousands of dead and injured civilians.”

Khatib added that this campaign embodies the university’s vision for its national responsibility.
