Specialized medical care is an acute and urgent need for the Palestinian population of the West Bank. Among the most critical needs identified is surgery. Palestinians from the newborn stage through adulthood are in dire need of essential surgical procedures in low supply due to local doctor shortages.
IMANA Medical Relief (IMR) has teamed up with Palestine Children's Relief Fund (PCRF) and local hospitals in the West Bank to run a regular surgical mission focusing on areas of pediatric surgical care, complex hand surgery, reconstructive plastic surgery, orthopedics, and vascular surgery. Our first team traveled therein December 2018 and successfully carried out 37 complex surgeries, while also training local teams to continue to travel to the West Bank and provide free surgical treatments for the people of Palestine.
