Italian Pediatric Cardiac Surgery Team sponsored by Gift of Life Italy of New York, Inc. Enters Gaza to Save Lives
On Sunday November 21, 2013, an eleven-member team of doctors and nurses from Italy crossed into Gaza to start a mission in pediatric cardiac surgery at the European Hospital in Khan Younis. Led by Dr. Giancarlo Crupi, the team of doctors and nurses included: Bianca Innocenzo, Luisi, Vincenzo Stefano, Dario Salvo, Cortinovis Fabiola, Crisci Silvana, Grazioli Lorenzo, Gregis Agata, Gustinetti Marta, Macchitelli Viviana and Roncali Alessia. After the team set up in the European Gaza Hospital, they operated on 6 children. This would not have been possible without the partnership with PCRF and the financial support of Gift of Life Italy of New York, Inc.
