This week, hand surgeon Dr. Scott Oshi returned to Palestine in his fifth volunteer teaching mission for the PCRF. He was joined by anesthesiologist Dr. Cynthia Woerz. Both are from Scottish Rite Hospital in Dallas, Texas. He is not only helping to treat children with complex hand injuries, but training local surgeon Dr. Abdelrahman Marridi, who we sent to India last year for a fellowship in hand surgery.
This mission is, like all of our missions, addressing the medical needs of Arab children in the Middle East regardless of their nationality, politics or religion.
