This week, a urology mission from the USA is volunteering in Rafidiah Hospital in the West Bank town of Nablus. This is a cooperative mission with the International Volunteers of Urology (IVU), an American NGO who we have partnered with for many years in Palestine. The team includes mission head surgeon Dr Brad Erickson from Iowa, surgeon Dr. Ben Davies from the University of Pittsburgh, surgical resident Dr. Niraj from St. Louis and Dr Hussein Abu khdair – anesthetist.
