Gaza trip indefinitely postponed

My plans to travel to Gaza for October, my first return as a midwife, are indefinitely postponed due to the ISIS related extended state of emergency in the Sinai desert, my only access to Gaza via the Rafah border. I am determined to get back to Gaza, but I am (with frustration) finally accepting that it may be later rather than sooner.

My work means I can’t (as I could in the past) set off at the drop of a hat if things change; I have to arrange quite a way ahead not to have birthing women who need me here at home. Donations for the Gaza trip remain set aside for when it does happen, and I’m happy also to redirect them as requested; some of the funds are going (with consent from the donors) each month to help support a lovely Gaza family who I spent a lot of time with in 2008/9.
