American Plastic Surgery Team Arrives in Gaza

This week, American plastic surgeon Dr. Matthew Chetta is volunteering at Al Shifa Hospital in the Gaza Strip on his first medical mission with the PCRF, to provide training for local surgeons and to treat patients suffering from skin burns caused by war and skin deformities. Dr. Matthew Chetta works at Oakland University William Beaumont and will be working alongside Dr. Ahmad Baba, another PCRF volunteer, who works at King Abdullah University Hospital in Jordan. This is part of the PCRF's ongoing effort to improve the quality of medical care in Palestine by training staff and helping the most urgent patients.
