Italian Pediatric Cardiology Mission Treats Children in Gaza

There are hundreds of children in the Gaza Strip with heart disease who need care that is not available to them there. This week, a six-member team of doctors from Italy returned to the European Gaza Hospital to provide free cardiac care for children with congenital heart disease. Led by long-time PCRF volunteer, surgeon Dr. Vincenzo Luisi, the team includes cardiologist Dr. Roberto Tumbarello, surgeon Dr. Mircea Cotul, cardiologist Dr. Vittoria Delucia, anesthesiologist Dr. Pierantonio Furfori and perfusionist Dario Fichera.
