an amazing soccer playerDuring the 2002 year Dr. Saad had been approached by the PCRF (also known as the Palestine Children’s Relief Fund). This non-political and non-profit organization was first founded during the 1991 year in order to help with the medical needs of the children in the Middle East. This organization was in need of a doctor who could perform surgery on a teen who had suffered from a gunshot wound. The doctors who were at the Israeli hospital were the ones who were able to help save the child’s life, but the injuries the child had were too complicated for any treatment to be done locally. After this, the PCRF made the decision to find Dr. Saad and fly the child to him in the U.S. in order to help save the life of the child with surgery.
When the child had arrived in the care of Dr. Saad they were in dire condition. The child had holes from the gunshot in his belly, and his skin was burning as well as him having a hard time eating. During the 2003 year the doctor had performed a complicated surgery that took seven hours to complete on the child, patching up all of the holes that were present and repairing any of the injuries that were internal. Everyone was happy with the end result, the surgery was certainly a success.
During the 2010 year the doctor had to perform yet another surgery on a child coming from the West Bank (she was a girl who had been born with her intestines hanging outside of her). There were 18 months of time that the local doctors had tried to help the child, but they were unable to. Once she was flown to Dr. Saad, the girl was immediately helped, and after five hours of surgery the doctor was able to help the girl greatly.
In the 2013 year the PCRF had come to the doctor with yet another child that was in need of some surgery. This time it was a boy that had been hit by a bomb, and he had been paralyzed in one of his legs. Prior to the incident the boy had been an amazing soccer player, but after he had been put in a wheelchair and was no longer able to move in the same ways. With the help of Dr. Saad and a qualified surgeon who had practice as a nerve doctor, the boy was able to walk on his own two legs 11 months later.
