Dr. Metras Artwork for PCRF
Dr. Dominique Metras is a world-renowned pediatric cardiac surgeon. He was the first chief and creator of cardiac surgery in Abidjan (Ivory Coast ), in Africa, in cooperation with the University French system, from 1976 to 1984. In 1984, he returned to Marseille (France) to run the only unit of pediatric cardiac surgery, and continued the activity with Terre des Hommes and also another French NGO (Enfants du Monde, Chaine de l'Espoir, La Ribambelle...) operating on children from Africa and other places.
In 1997 Dr. Metras started his first medical mission, bringing in medical teams (anesthesiologists, perfusionists, cardiologists, nurses) working for Chaine de l'Espoir, Surgeons of Hope, PCRF, and also another Swiss NGO for Mauritius Island. He worked in different countries; Iraq (5 missions with governmental support), Mozambique, Cameroon, Senegal (three times), Nicaragua 6 times (for Surgeons of Hope), and Mauritius Island. He also worked in several other countries for cooperation support, surgery, and teaching: Tunisia, Morocco, Algeria, Egypt, India, Iran, Dominican Republic. His work extended to Palestine with his first two missions at Makassed, they were supported by the French Consulate, and subsequently by PCRF. Dr. Metras is auctioning off three pieces of his watercolor artwork in support of the PCRF Healing Hearts Program. This will enable PCRF to continue its medical missions throughout the Levant, helping children get the care they could not otherwise receive locally.
