Dr. Saad Saad – A Doctor with the Golden Heart

When it comes to children, we are all very emotional.

Especially those among us who are already parents.

Have you ever considered how this fact would affect you if fate had destined you to save the children’s lives? Would such a job be a blessing or a great sacrifice for you?

One thing is certain – this can’t be done by anyone!

Such people are precious and few, and one of them is Dr. Saad Saad.

The Simplicity Of Thinking

Great people are actually very simple. It’s almost an unwritten rule.

Saving children’s lives, and yet remain consistent in your own simplicity…

That is a thing that only a remarkable man can do. Although awarded for numerous achievements, and with many humanitarian missions behind him – Dr. Saad has remained modest and unobtrusive.

Rocky Life Path

Born in Palestine in the late 1940s, Dr. Saad was one of eight children in his family. It was the time when Palestine was suffering a dramatic transition. The political situation resulted in the forced relocation of many people. Dr. Saad’s mother had to board quickly with her children into a bus and leave to a destination unknown.

The family never thought it would last, and on that day, they left the key under their welcome mat. They didn’t even take anything with them, besides their clothes – firmly believing they would come home soon. But that didn’t happen.

His father, a skilled petroleum mechanic soon moved his family to Kuwait.

Born in Palestine, raised in Kuwait,Dr. Saad Saad got his medical degree from the University of Cairo, Egypt. Sometimes a hard life can open another door. One just needs to recognize that. Dr. Saad could. He set his mind and energy on becoming a pediatric surgeon.

Dr. Saad Saad Medical Missions

Becoming an accomplished pediatric surgeon, Dr. Saad Saad was building his career step by step. For years he has been professionally trained and has become one of the most respected experts in fields of pediatric surgery.

His expertise and innovation attracted the attention of world medical institutions, humanitarian groups, and even the Saudi Royal Family.

Even though, Dr. Saad Saad has never forgotten his native country of Palestine. He continued to pursue his own efforts to help his country. He received many awards. Among many, there were two awards for his extraordinary efforts to help the people of Palestine. After many years, he finally went to Palestine in May of 2008. With a good reason, for sure. He wanted to pass down his skills, help the unprivileged and help the economy.

Noble Mission In Palestine

During his medical missions, Dr. Saad helped many people. Especially when it comes to unprivileged categories of the population. These include people and their children who are not able to afford medical treatments, poor and families from social margins. He has devoted his life to this very noble and kind mission.

His wish was also to transfer the skills he perfected in the USA. During his stay in humanitarian missions in Palestine, he trained young pediatric surgeons. He was passing the knowledge and helped them ensure better help to the locals after his departure.

Finally, let’s return to the beginning of this story. Great things are sometimes born out of very difficult circumstances. Dr. Saad is the true example of a man whose heart was not tainted by his hard life. But totally opposite. His heart turned out to be the noble one.
