In April 2013 PCRF opened the first public pediatric cancer center in Palestine - the Huda Al Masri Pediatric Cancer Department - in Beit Jala Hospital near Bethlehem in the West Bank. This department was named after our founding head social worker, Huda Al Masri, who passed away in 2009 from leukemia. Since it's opening, hundreds of sick children have had expert medical care that they otherwise would not have gotten for free in the department thanks to generous donors all over the world. In February 2019 PCRF opened Dr. Musa and Suhaila Nasir Pediatric CancerDepartment in Gaza City, the first cancer center for kids in Gaza. Both departments are privately funded and provide children in Palestine care they otherwise cannot get locally for free.
