Palestine Children’s Relief Fund
The Palestine Children’s Relief Fund (PCRF) addresses medical needs of children in the Middle East. Dr. Saad was approached by the non-profit organization to successfully save the lives of three children. The local hospitals in the area did not have the resources or knowledge to treat the victims. The PCRF immediately identified Dr. Saad as an expert in pediatric surgery and did not waste any time. Dr. Saad performed three miraculous surgeries on Palestine children in the United States. The first of Dr. Saad’s incredible surgeries was on a 15-year-old boy suffering from severe complications from a gunshot wound. Saad was able to repair the boy’s internal injuries resulting in a successful recovery. His next surgery involved a unique condition for a girl born with intestines on the outside of her body. Saad again showed his incredible talent by creating a cover for the girl’s intestines. His final surgery involved Saad acting as a liaison to find a qualified nerve doctor to assist a boy who suffered severe leg damage. The boy made a great recovery due to the unyielding effort of Dr. Saad.
After successfully completing these surgeries, the PCRF requested the local assistance of Dr. Saad and he concurred graciously. Dr. Saad had a personal agenda of helping the underprivileged who do not have access or cannot afford healthcare. Since his initial trip in 2008, he has made seven subsequent trips to Palestine.
Motivation to Help
Dr. Saad has attributes his missions in Palestine to three main motivators. First, he has a passion to provide medical care to the underprivileged. Second, Dr. Saad is eager to share his vast amount of knowledge to younger Palestinian doctors. This will increase efforts to save more lives locally when Dr. Saad is not able to assist. Finally, Dr. Saad aims to improve the local economy of Palestine. Travel expenses can be extremely costly and Dr. Saad helps eliminate that cost by training local doctors. Dr. Saad is officially retired, but his efforts and contributions to the medical field continue to be an influence. Learn more: https://www.crunchbase.com/person/saad-saad
