On December 22, a three-doctor team from the USA completed a two-week trip to Jenin Hospital in the northern West Bank. Led by San Diego plastic and reconstructive surgeon, the team included Iowa-based anesthesiologist Dr. Paul Meyer, who worked earlier in December with the Maxillofacial surgery team in Salfeet, and Dr. Jubran Dakwar from California. Dr. Dakwar was on a urology mission to Hebron in September. Dr. Peters was the first PCRF surgeon to volunteer in 1997 to go and operate on children in Palestine, and he has treated children for free in San Diego in the past from Palestine. Thirty-seven burned and deformed patients had reconstructive surgery on this mission.
