Free Jerusalem Clinic,
I wanted to thank you so much for a really interesting and enjoyable day. It was very enjoyable to see the way the clinic functions! I loved seeing how the patients, especially the children, responded to your very kind doctors, nurse and other staff members. Both Dr Mohammed and Dr Attia were clearly very popular with the children who visited! I wouldn’t be surprised if these same little guys grow up wanting to be like your own staff.
Everyone was so kind and happy! I really wasn’t sure what to expect. My own experience of spending months in the children’s ward of the hospital in the U.S.was never pleasant. That probably set-up expectations before I visited Free Jerusalem Clinic that it would be a place that would be sad, poor and neglected. Nothing could be farther from the truth! It was lovely to see how well the patients were treated.
I also enjoyed the walk around the Wehdat Camp. Despite the very crowded conditions, people were happy and friendly. Completely different than I had expected.
