This kid was also flown to the U.S. by the Palestine Children’s Relief Fund and Dr. Saad Saad once again performed a successful operation, creating a “fig leaf cover” for her, which served to cover up the exposed intestines.

If Dr. Saad Saad was willing to perform surgeries for free in the United States, he would be willing to perform surgeries for free in Palestine and Jerusalem, right? So, the Palestine Children’s Relief Fund make the request that Dr. Saad Saad travel to the holy land to perform free surgeries on the indigent children there who were in desperate need of required surgeries, which Dr. Saad Saad gladly answered in the affirmative once again.

In all, Dr. Saad Saad made 8 medical missions to Jerusalem, the first of which occurred in May of 2008. During this maiden medical mission, Dr. Saad Saad provided the impoverished children there with much needed medical care.

Dr. Saad said that he decided to personally travel to the holy land to help the impoverished children there by performing free surgeries on them for a number of reasons that are very important to him. Dr. Saad Saad wanted to come to the aid of fellow Palestinians; wanted to share the medical skills he had acquired in the America with Palestinian doctors, which would in turn result in improved medical care for the locals; wanted to help out the local Palestinian economy by doing away with the need to travel to the state of Israel to perform the surgeries, which would eliminate the travel cost being deducted from taxes collected from the Palestinians for the state of Palestine; wanted to eliminate the costs of transporting patients to Israel for the surgeries; and save money for the patients and the Palestinian government.
