Hand Surgery Team Starts Mission in Gaza

This week, the PCRF is sponsoring a hand surgery team from the Little Wings Foundation in Dubai to operate on patients at the European Gaza Hospital in Khan Younis. Led by hand surgeon Dr. Christiana Savvidou, the team includes scrub nurse June Kate Bangcaya and podiatrist Caterina Obrador. Hand surgery is a major issue in Palestine, as many injuries and congenital defects leave patients without many options for local care. The team are treating patients and training local doctors.
