“A COMMON ENEMY”
It is easy to believe that there are no channels of communication between Israelis and Palestinians. This is what is being promoted through most media outlets around the world.
A new video from Project Rozana begs to differ.
‘Project Rozana: Tomorrow’ briefly explores the work of two dedicated Israelis who are training Palestinian medical specialists in their respective hospitals in order for those specialists to build the health capacity of Palestinian society.
At Assuta Hospital in Ashdod, Dr Adi Leiber (pictured above) is training Palestinians doctors in kidney dialysis, while Professor Polina Stepensky from Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem, is training Project Rozana fellow, Dr Khadra Salami, in bone marrow transplantation.
Says Ron Finkel AM, Chair of Project Rozana International,
“Senior medical staff from Israel’s major teaching hospitals are routinely training Palestinian doctors, nurses and therapists in various specialties needed for the Palestinian community.
“Increasingly, Project Rozana is providing the funds because the future wellbeing of both Israelis and Palestinians requires close medical cooperation. Each community gains from the other; the health and wellbeing of people demands the highest degree of medical excellence which can only be achieved through training.
“We are dedicated to building bridges to better understanding to Israelis and Palestinians through health.”
