Dr. Saad Saad, the Humanitarian Surgeon

When a kid from the Middle East was fighting for his life after having sustained severe gunshot wound and the Palestine Children’s Relief Fund urgently scouring the world for an expert with the expertise to perform an exceedingly complicated pediatric surgery, Dr. Saad answered everyone’s prayers.

This child was flown to the U.S. by the Palestine Children’s Relief Fund so that Dr. Saad Saad could operate on the child, a surgery that lasted seven hour long hours, during which time Dr. Saad Saad fixed all of the child’s internal injuries as well as patched up the kid.

Success has a tendency to invite more requests and as a result of this successful surgery, the Palestine Children’s Relief Fund further sought out Dr. Saad Saad to perform more and more free surgeries on underprivileged children and even make requests for the good pediatric surgeon to travel to Palestine to perform more free surgeries there on improverished children, which Dr. Saad Saad gladly agreed to do. In fact, Dr. Saad Saad made eight total medical missions to Palestine.

The first medical mission to Palestine took place in May of 2008. During this mission, Dr. Saad Saad helped the needy by rendering them medical care.

Dr. Saad Saad chose to personally travel to Palestine to perform free surgeries there on improverished children for the following reasons: first, Dr. Saad Saad wanted to help the needy people of his motherland, who would not otherwise have been able to receive any medical treatment whatsoever. Put differently, Dr. Saad wanted to give something to his fellow countrymen by bringing the medical skills he had acquired in the United States to Palestine with his eight medical missions.

Moreover, Dr. Saad Saad wanted to impart the skills he had acquired to the young, new Palestinian pediatric surgeons of Palestine. In this way, following Dr. Saad Saad’s departure from Palestine these doctor can better provide medical care to the locals.

Furthermore, Dr. Saad wanted to do something to support the local economy of Palestine by eliminating the necessity of having to travel to Israel to perform the surgeries so that the cost thereof is not deducted from taxes collected from Palestinians for Palestine.

In addition, by Dr. Saad Saad performing surgery in the country of Palestine and training the new local surgeons there, the costs associated with transporting patients to Israel for surgeries are eliminated, and patients and the Palestinian government may also avoid paying much of the cost associated with the treatments.
