Due to the high number of high-velocity gunshot injuries to youths in the Gaza Strip over the past two months, an emergency appeal was sent out for vascular surgeons. PCRF volunteer and French vascular surgeon Dr. Alexandre Karsenti responded to that humanitarian appeal and volunteered to come to Gaza to help provide his expert care in his field, repairing some of the complex injuries and helping to support the local staff. He has volunteered with the PCRF in the past two years on several missions, and works in Paris at the Grand Hôpital de l est Francilienthe. He is second vascular surgeon that the PCRF has sent to Gaza in the past six weeks and will be volunteering his time to help in the surgery department in Shifa Hospital,
