The Rafidia Hospital in the West Bank is a large public facility which sees needy patients from all sectors of society. It also serves as host for ophthalmic surgical missions carried out several times per year by various charitable groups from around the world. Thanks to this collaborative effort, hundreds of medically indigent children and adults are given sight saving eye operations. This donation of surgical supplies and medicines was hand delivered to the Rafidia Hospital by Direct Relief volunteers.
