Complicated Cases at Wills Go Global
“As the war in Ukraine rages on and more and more wounded need very specialized and complicated procedures in order to return them to some degree of functionality in their lives my colleagues at Wills Eye Hospital became an invaluable resource for me. Three of the seriously wounded with gun shot and shrapnel eye injuries were accepted by Wills Eye for pro bono treatment. The prompt attention given by doctors was a miraculous gift they received.
The courteous and professional manner with which these young men were treated was something they always talk about with an overwhelming feeling or appreciation and awe. I personally as a physician feel enormous gratitude thanking all the doctors who treated the wounded, from the bottom of my heart, for rendering their expertise, for their professionalism and most of all for their compassion.”
