Dr. Saad Saad is a pediatric surgeon based out of New Jersey. In 2002 Dr. Saad was contacted by the Palestine Children’s Relief Fund (PCRF). The PCRF needed a surgeon to operate on a 15 year old boy who had been shot. The boy had bullet holes in his stomach, and great internal injuries. Doctors in Israel were able to save the boy’s life, but were unable to perform the much more complicated operations in Israel.
This is where Dr. Saad comes in. The boy was flown to the United States in 2003 to have the dire surgery performed by Dr. Saad. It took seven long hours but Dr. Saad was successful, and the boy was recovering well. After this amazing operation Dr. Saad was contacted once more by the PCRF. The organization was impressed, and they knew that the doctor could be of great help to them. He was asked to travel to Palestine and perform surgery locally. Dr. Saad agreed to their request; his first flight to Palestine occurred in 2008. Since that first trip, Dr. Saad returned to Palestine seven more times.One reason he stated for going was that he simply wanted to help people that were less fortunate. The doctor also desired to pass along some knowledge to the area that he was serving. Saad’s third reason for the travels were to help Palestine’s economy. He performed theses surgeries for free which was unheard of to most Palestinians. Dr. Saad Saad went on to win two awards for his compassionate acts towards others. One award was PCRF’s Humanitarian Award. Additionally, the doctor was presented an award for his humanitarian acts from the Governor of Ramallah. Learn more: https://www.facebook.com/drsaadsaad12
