This week, a three-member team from the Hammer Forum, a German NGO who cooperates with the PCRF on volunteer medical missions to the Middle East, started to provide maxillofacial surgery at Shifa Hospital in Gaza City. This mission, led by Dr. Walid Ayad and including anesthetist Dr. Christian Brodowski, and Anesthetic nurse Jana Gottschling, are helping children get the care that they need, but otherwise would not get locally.
