Dr. Musa and Suhaila Nasir Pediatric Cancer Department

Dr. Musa and Suhaila Nasir Pediatric Cancer Department

A humanitarian project to build a department for children in Gaza fighting cancer

The department was opened in February 2019 after four years of fundraising and construction, it is the first and only pediatric oncolog department for children in the Gaza Strip.  Prior to the opening, every child in Gaza with cancer had to travel outside - often away from his or her family - for care.  The new department has 16 rooms and 14 out-patient beds, as well as a playroom, lab, pharmacy, and many other amenities that were not found before in any hospital in Gaza.  PCRF also provides tutoring for children during their stay in the department and many other child-life services.   This is the first and only hospital in Gaza that provides such care for sick children.  

This is why we built Gaza's first and only pediatric cancer department

Here are some video stories of children in Gaza who are fighting cancer and waiting for our new department to be built. We are working hard to get this department up and running, dealing with many challenges that require us to continue to remember that these children are the reason we work.

History of the Department in Photos


Dr. Musa and Suhaila Nasir helped to found the PCRF with Steve Sosebee in 1992, and were instrumental in the organization’s development and growth into one of the main nonprofits helping children in the Middle East. Dr. Musa and Suhaila exemplify the true humanitarian mission of the PCRF, which treats any child, regardless of their religion or nationality.
