In 2002, the PCRF (Palestine Children’s Relief Fund) reached out to Dr. Saad, asking if he could perform surgery on a 15-year-old boy. The child from the West Bank had been shot in the stomach and needed complicated surgery to fix the damage left by the event. Dr. Saad agreed and PCRF flew the patient to the United States to have the surgery performed.
When Dr. Saad examined the young boy, he determined that his condition was dire. There were still holes in his stomach, causing burning of the skin. The child also had trouble eating. The surgery was performed in 2003 and would last for 7 hours. He patched up the holes and fixed the internal injuries. The surgery was successful.
Another surgery was performed by the doctor in 2010. A baby girl from the West Bank was born with her intestines on the outside of her body. The PCRF flew the girl out to the United States where Dr. Saad performed surgery on her. The surgery took 5 hours and the results for the young child of only 18 months were good.
