Three Gaza Children Arrive to the US for Free Medical Care

Eleven-year-old Abrar Allahham, thirteen-year-Raghd Almusaddar, and seven-year-old Qossay Sallout arrived to the USA on April 14, where they will get free medical care arranged by the PCRF that they cannot get in Gaza. Abrar is from Khan Younis and suffered excessive burns over most her body in 2007, and will have reconstructive surgery at the Shriners Children's Hospital in Boston. This is her second trip to Boston for free care. Raghad is from Deir Al Balah and suffers from severe scoliosis, and will undergo spine surgery at the Philadelphia Shriners Hospital. Qosaay is from Khan Younis and was born with a significant facial deformity and a large posterior cranial defect. He traveled with his grandmother to Shreveport, where he will be treated at the Louisiana Hospital. The PCRF is the main NGO in the world arranging free care for sick and injured children from the Middle East. We thank the many volunteers who make our work possible.
