This week, a four-member team of volunteer doctors from Italy is in the Palestine Medical Complex providing life-saving open-heart surgery on sick children born with heart defects. Led by surgeon Dr. Francesco Santoro and Dr. Elena Ribera, both on their second mission, and including Anesthesiologist and Intensivist Dr. Giuseppe Adurno and perfusionist Michele Macchia, they are helping to support the local surgery team led by Dr. Ayman Morrar. PCRF is the main NGO in Palestine building pediatric cardiac surgery services for children in the public sector.
