GAZA, (PIC)– Palestinian poet Ilham Abu Dhaher has launched an initiative to build a hospital for cancer treatment in the blockaded Gaza Strip under the slogan “Let’s Do It.” Poet Abu Dhaher said the initiative saw the day because of the lack of hospitals for cancer therapy in the besieged coastal enclave. “It is the right of our people in Gaza to have a hospital for cancer-stricken patients,” the poet said. She raised alarm bells over the agony suffered by Gaza’s cancer patients due to the closure of border-crossings and the Israeli-Egyptian blockade. “I will do whatever it takes to make this dream come true,” she vowed. “A Palestinian benevolent expatriate donated a five-dunum-land for the project,” she said. “Whoever thinks of serving his motherland has to make the first steps on his own,” poet Abu Dhaher further stated.
