2183RE: [Adults AMC] IRAQI CHILD WITH AMC
- Feb 9, 2005Jesse,
Thanks Jesse for the information. Dr. Charles Scott, who works for ALFRED I
DUPONT HOSPITAL, responded back and although the medical facility cannot
assist the child, he recommended the Shriners Hospital for Children in
Philadelphia and also provided a point of contact.
Thank you very much for your recommendation.
If anybody would like to check out the HUMANITARIAN OPERATIONS CENTER (HOC)
website, it's http://www.kuwaithoc.com/
We at the HOC appreciate your assistance.
