During the second week of November, an Italian volunteer surgery mission began operating on children with thyroid gland disease. Led by surgeons Dr. Micaela Piccoli, Dr. Barbara Mullineris, and Dr. Francesca Pecchini, who were joined by endocrinologist Dr. Andrea Craparo, anesthesiologist Dr. Matteo Gazzi, and consultant Maurizia Cherardi, the team are working at Alia Hospital in the West Bank town of Hebron. The team was organized by our Italian chapter, who send over dozens of volunteers each year to treat our children.
