St John Eye Hospital, Jerusalem
The St John of Jerusalem Eye Hospital Group is the only charitable provider of expert eye care in the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem. Supported by St John organisations and individuals across the world, the hospital provides sight-saving eyecare to thousands of patients each year, regardless of ethnicity, religion or ability to pay.
St John Scotland supports the work of the Eye Hospital through annual grant funding for key pieces of work, most recently supporting outreach clinics which reach the most vulnerable patients who have least access to healthcare.
St John Scotland was also the major donor to the Hebron hospital, part of the Eye Hospital Group which opened in 2015. This facility was built to better serve the population living in the West Bank, and has greatly improved the accessibility of services in the area.
