2013 Spring Surgical Volunteer Trip treats over 100 patients
The 2013 Spring Surgical Volunteer Trip was held from May 18 – May 31 in the cities of Nablus, Hebron, and Ramallah. Over 300 patients were screened, resulting in surgery for 104 patients including 83 with clefts, 11 with microtia, and 10 with other craniofacial anomalies. We are very grateful to all of our volunteers, both foreign and local, who made this trip successful.
Read about one of our patients, Oday, who was featured in a story by Reuters. Oday is a patient with microtia (a congenital malformation of the ear) who received his first stage operation for ear reconstruction.
