This week, a four-member team of doctors from Italy arrived in the Gaza Strip to provide thoracic surgery for patients in need, as well as to help train local staff. The team is working at the European Gaza Hospital in Khan Younis and have volunteered in the past in Gaza. The volunteer team is lead by Dr. V. Stefano Luisi, who has lead dozens of pediatric cardiac surgery missions to Palestine for the PCRF over the past ten years, as well as surgeon Dr. Gianfranco Menconi, pulmonologist Dr. Alessandro Torrini, and anesthesiologist Dr. Michele Ristori. We are grateful to these hard working doctors for their humanity and professionalism.
