More in 2003 Special surgery for kids [Archives:2002/50/Local News]
Korean physician Dr. John Park, and American nurse Lorraine Kisch, workers who are with International Community Services (ICS), check a young boy with a cleft lip during a recent medical project at the Kuwait Hospital in Sana’a.
Dr. Park, based in Sana’a, hosted a team of surgeons from Korea for one week to perform operations on 33 patients, mostly children, with cleft lips and clip palates.
The team will return in March, 2003 to continue on the 200 young Yemeni patients now on a waiting list.
ICS, a humanitarian aid organization based in Sana’a, has offices across Yemen.
