For some reason, this story does not appear on any “boycott Israel” website.

Two physicians from Rambam Health Care Campus, Dr Omri Emodi and Dr Zach Sharoni, recently participated in a medical delegation to northern Ethiopia, where they provided pro bono medical care to patients with cleft lip. 

From Haifa to Ethiopia, with love

According to a press release from Rambam Medical Center, Drs Emodi and Sharoni were invited to participate in the “surgery marathon” by the humanitarian aid organization Operation Smile. Over the 11 days of the mission, the 40 participants examined dozens of children and adults with cleft lip, giving their patients hope for a better quality of life, and a big smile. 

The Jewish Press tried to contact several BDS organizations in Israel and abroad for comment on this story. None had responded by press time. The Jewish Press will continue to update responses received by BDS groups as they come in.
