The United Arab Emirates, Qatar, and now – for the first time – Britan: the Coordination and Liaison Administration (CLA) for Gaza is spearheading the international export of strawberries.
In the Gaza Strip, the season for growing and marketing strawberries began last month - and it is already setting new precedents. After recent weeks saw the first-ever shipment of Gazan strawberries to the Gulf countries, today (Tuesday) five tons of strawberries left the Gaza Strip for England - through Ben Gurion Airport, as arranged by the COGAT's Gaza CLA.
CHOP has undertaken the training of as many physicians as possible from around the world in the necessary technique after discovering that, with the use of this technique, lives can be saved and severe harm to children can be prevented in cases of arrested breathing. During the conference, the physicians learned the necessary techniques for performing tracheotomies in babies and obtained qualifications allowing them to utilize the techniques in their medical practices.
The conference was held at Samson Assuta Ashdod Hospital in cooperation with the Peres Center for Peace and Innovation, which is heading a program for training Palestinian physicians at leading hospitals. The conference was met with high demand among leading Israeli hospitals, which sent senior physicians from pediatric intensive care units to join Palestinian physicians who came from the Palestinian Authority.
“Thanks to this conference, children’s lives will be saved,” stated Dr. Noa Rosenfeld-Yehoshua. The training “will save children’s lives in cases where, until now, arrested breathing prevented oxygen from reaching the brain while critical moments passed and irreversible damage resulted. By minimizing the damage and the risk to the child, this newly learned technique will help us open the air passage even in difficult cases that were considered intricate and complicated before.”
