Liverpool's Lord Mayor, Councillor Gary Millar will welcome a group of medics from Gaza to the Town Hall on Monday. The medics, who are currently training at the Royal Liverpool Hospital will have afternoon tea with the Lord Mayor.
The group are being taught life changing skills to take back to Gaza so that they can perform kidney transplants for young and old who currently have to live on dialysis.
I am honoured to be welcoming delegates from Gaza to the Town Hall who are here training to improve the lives of kidney patients in Gaza. I cannot praise highly enough the work of these, and all medics, for the continued commitment to their profession. This training is vital and once again this great city of Liverpool is leading the way on sharing expertise. I hope they have enjoyed their time here and will take back with them the knowledge and skills required to ease the lives of those currently suffering from kidney failure.
We are extremely grateful to the Lord Mayor for extending his hospitality to our colleagues from Gaza. This is a great opportunity for us in Liverpool and the team from Gaza to really make a difference to the lives of people in Gaza living on dialysis. The team will learn from our expertise and take this back to Shifa Hospital so that they can carry out kidney transplants.
