Condition partly critical – babies from Gaza: Vienna offers to take them


The city of Vienna is offering to take in babies from the Gaza Strip who are dependent on intensive medical care. According to Mayor Michael Ludwig, appropriate precautions have already been taken.

“Humanity is always at the forefront in Vienna. “Especially when it comes to children in need,” Ludwig emphasized on Monday.

As a spokesperson for the APA explained, discussions are already underway with the Vienna Health Association. This concerns, for example, medical care for premature birth. However, there are still no concrete plans to bring children from Gaza to Vienna.

Meanwhile, the first premature babies from Al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza City have been transferred to hospitals in Egypt. The children were taken from the hospital because the operations could no longer take place there due to the war between the radical Islamic Hamas and Israel.

WHO: “All babies have serious infections”
The premature babies were initially transported to the southern Gaza Strip in mobile incubators on Sunday. On Monday the journey continued to Egypt. “28 babies have now arrived safely in Egypt. Three babies remain in Emarati hospital and are receiving further treatment,” the WHO said in response to a Reuters question. “All babies are suffering from serious infections and still need medical care.”
