The convoy, which entered through Erez crossing, included 19 truckloads of medical equipment and food products for the hospital’s staff, and 5 buses transporting the respective members.  Along with the convoy, the transport of one fuel tank, one refrigerated truck and prefabricated buildings, which will add 300 sqm. to the existing hospital, was also coordinated.
