Swiss Maxillofacial Team Returns To Gaza
Swiss Maxillofacial Team Returns To Gaza

The dedicated medical team from Switzerland, led by Dr. Johannes Kuttenberger and supported by maxillofacial surgeon Dr. Andrea Della Chiesa and OR nurse Kathrin Schulze, returned to Palestine to begin their volunteer mission at Nasser Hospital in the southern Gaza Strip. On the first day of their mission, they conducted examinations on 37 children who are facing the challenges of cleft lip and cleft palate. So far, three successful surgeries have been performed. Through their expertise and care, they offer these children a chance at a brighter future filled with possibilities and renewed hope.

These numerous pediatric medical missions have played a pivotal role in improving countless children's lives and enhancing local surgeons' skills. Dr. Kuttenberger is part of the maxillofacial and oral surgery committee on our Medical Advisory Board and gives of his time and talent for medical missions to Palestine with PCRF.
