Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) announced that 43 surgeries were performed in Gaza Strip over the course of a month.
In a statement, QRCS said that the operations came within the framework of the health interventions it implements to save the lives of patients in the Gaza Strip, which contributed to reducing the number of kidney failure cases that needed arterial connections to zero, and also achieved success in placing devices for oncology patients, to facilitate access to therapeutic doses.
The statement said that it was Dr Mohamed Klopp, the QRCS consultant for vascular surgery in Gaza, who performed the aforementioned operations at the European Gaza Hospital.
Qatar Red Crescent supports surgical interventions within the "Surgeries for Poor Patients" project, which includes contracting with a number of consultants in surgical specialties, such as cardiothoracic surgery, urology and orthopaedics, to perform the necessary surgeries for patients, train local medical staff, and to follow up patients staying in hospitals at a total cost of $1.4mn.
