urgent call to open Rafah

UPDATED [see below]:
Iman, from the IMORB says:
I’ve just got a call from Paki and Christian telling me that there’s a very sick Palestinian woman lying on the ground in front of Rahah gate. She has kidney problems and need a kidney transplant very soon, and as it can not be done in Egypt now for Palestinians , nor can Egypt allow her to travel abroad and have it somewhere else, the woman needs to return NOW to Gaza so she can be treated in Israel or travel to another country.

Contact Egyptian embassies to let her go back home [NOTE: WHILE WAITING FOR THE WOMAN’S FULL NAME AND AGE, CALLS CAN STILL BE MADE IN REFERENCE TO A WOMAN WITH KIDNEY PROBLEMS WHO NEEDS TO RE-ENTER GAZA]. Spread the word to the media. If this woman dies we’ll all going to sue the Egyptian government.

They told them at the gate, including the woman’s family, let her die, we do not care and the border is closed.
Please, spread the word, bug the Egyptian embassies and give them the headache they really deserve.

Iman, IMORB [International Movement to Open the Rafah Border]

July 11 UPDATE:

IMORB reports that:

Q , travelled back to Mansoura, an Egyptian city last night where they were staying to take her for Kidney dialysis. Kefaya, 57, well-educated and nominated as a parliament member, lost her husband during the Intifada and her house in the last war. She has been in Egypt for treatment since May 16, and todate has spent around 60.000 Egyptian pounds. Doctors said that she needs a Pancreas transplant as well because she’s diabetes and that can be done in France. Her son’s kidney’s tissues did not match so they’ll try her daughter who is in Gaza now.

The good news is that our friend Jane from France who was with us at the sit-in but returned to France yesterday, says she will try to help and get her to France.

The police at Rafah gate threatened the lady’s family as they do with everybody and told them better not deal with us, but they refused that.

UPDATE:

July 15:

Q was finally permitted to enter Gaza.


THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONCERN

BUT, WHAT IS NEEDED IS ALLOWANCE FOR PALESTINIANS TO ENTER AND LEAVE

GAZA MORE EXPEDITIOUSLY SO THESE EMERGENCIES DON’T OCCUR –

Please write to the US/ UK/ Egypt Embassy Consulate to ask for a better way of allowing people passage, especially when sick or injured; but family

members should also be allowed to visit one another.

This is not the first case of emergency that I have seen, having spent

three weeks in Egypt and two weeks at the Rafah border – as monitor, day and night for 14 days.

thank you

Don Bryant
