    UK aid from the Department for International Development has funded teams of NHS doctors to travel to Gaza in conjunction with British charities Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP) and IDEALS. They're providing vital life-saving and life-improving surgery to some of the people who were most severely injured in the conflict last year. The doctors have been volunteering in their spare time to visit Gaza roughly once a month over the past eight months, helping to carry out complex operations and provide training to Palestinian colleagues.

        September 2011 Nepal's long-stalled peace process is resulting in weak government institutions that are unable to make proper use of funds. International donors have been accused of turning a blind eye to the scale of the problem. Meanwhile, on the local government level, where most development projects go, there have been no elected officials for almost a decade. Al Jazeera's Subina Shrestha reports from southern Nepal.

            On 7 July 2014, following weeks of growing tensions over the tit-for-tat murders of three young Israeli students and a Palestinian teenager from East Jerusalem and rockets being fired out of Gaza, the Israeli army launched a large scale military operation in the coastal territory dubbed 'Operation Protective Edge'. In the course of the 51-day conflict over 2,100 people were killed and more than 11,000 wounded. The majority of casualties in Gaza were civilians. This unprecedented volume of people needing urgent and long term care for complex injuries has put a huge strain on Gaza's health system. Over the last six months, teams of six highly skilled British orthopaedic and plastic surgeons from the NHS have been volunteering their time, rotating in and out of Gaza. The UK government’s support to the organsiations behind this programme, MAP and IDEALS, was part of a package of more than £17 million in emergency humanitarian assistance, to help deliver lifesaving food, clean water, shelter and medical assistance.

                On Wednesday 4 February 2015 Gavin was at the House of Commons despatch box for Labour, asking the Secretary of State for International Development to explain why only a quarter of the £20m pledged by the Government for reconstruction efforts in Gaza has been disbursed. In January Gavin visited the Occupied Palestinian Territories to see first hand the resilience of the Palestinian people in the face of great destruction and freezing weather.
