Dr. Saad Saad: Providing Medical Service to the People of Palestine
Dr. Saad Saad is a compassionate Palestinian doctor who is well-known for sponsoring several medical missions for the people of Palestine. He has a certification to practice general surgery and pediatric surgery. He had to return to his people after living for several years in the United States because advice from his colleague touched his heart. Today, Dr. Saad Saad keeps on doing his passion for providing medical assistance especially to those who could not afford a visit to the doctor. He has already retired from his position at a private hospital, and he is now dedicating his life in serving for others.
As a child, the young Saad Saad never knew that he would become a doctor someday. He belonged to a family of migrants, and they keep on transferring from one city to another back in the early days. His family decided to settle in Kuwait when he was in high school, and during these years, he could not decide which career path he would take after he graduates. He thought of becoming an engineer, just like his brothers, but the extreme temperature in Kuwait would pose a health risk for him if he would have to go under the sun every time. He wanted to work in an environment with an active air-conditioning system, and he suddenly thought of becoming a doctor working inside the hospital. The extreme climate in Kuwait influenced the young Saad Saad to become a doctor, and his parents threw their support behind his back.
When he entered college, Saad Saad decided to study locally so that he can stay with his family. After he graduated from his pre-medical course, he had to go to Egypt to study at the Cairo University. He studied hard while he was away from his family, and through his hard work, he ended up being an honor student. He was ranked as the second best student in the university, and he went back to his family bringing with him the recognition that he received.
He had to go to the United Kingdom to go under an internship program. After his internship, Saad Saad finally received his license as a professional. To further his knowledge about the degree, he had to go to Lebanon and take an examination that would allow him to practice in the United States. He passed the exams and was permitted to enter the United States where he would settle for several years. He earned some certifications while living in the United States, and he would, later on, use the knowledge that he acquired overseas to help his people who are living in harsh conditions in Palestine. Dr. Saad Saad stated that the thing he learned from being a doctor is that they should not look at the person’s race or beliefs when giving them medical service because after all, they are still humans who need to be treated.
