Preparations will begin next week in the Belgian capitol to announce plans to establish a joint Palestinian-Israeli maternity hospital in the town of Kisofim near the Gaza Strip.
The hospital is planned to be completed in three years and is expected to cost $20, provided by the European Union.
Both Israeli and Palestinian doctors, medics, and support employees will work together to serve residents from Palestine and Israel. The Ã¢â‚¬Å“let’s give birth togetherÃ¢â‚¬Â initiative was launched by a group of Israeli and Palestinian physicians. The hospital will occupy an area of 25 acres and could be reached by Gaza residents in 45 minutes, if the Ã¢â‚¬Å“security situation allows.
