Letter to the Palestinian Paediatric Association

Below is the text of a letter sent by Dr Patricia Hamilton, President of RCPCH, to the President of the Palestinian Paediatric Association.

Dear Samir,

I am writing on behalf of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health to express our deep sympathy to you and your colleagues, especially those who are living and working in Gaza at this terrible time. We are aware of what you must all be suffering knowing that children are caught up so tragically in this dreadful conflict.

Your plight is sadly only too well known and features in our papers each day and it is so difficult to know what we can do. We can only hope for effective political interventions that result in some effective resolution.

In the meantime, your paediatric colleagues and friends in the UK are thinking of you.

With sincere regards,

Patricia

PRCPCH
