FQMS Garden Party – 21st July

FQMS Garden Party

Thank you to everyone who attended our Garden Party on Sunday 21st July 2019 in the Courtyard Garden at 170 Queen’s Gate, London.

It was a wonderful afternoon with music from a talented group of students from the Blyth Centre for Music and Arts.

With Rima’s help, we had a sale table and a tombola with lots of high-quality prizes. Altogether we raised over £1,500.

We were lucky enough to have Dr Khamis Elessi, a Consultant in Neurorehabilitation and Pain Medicine in Gaza, attend our Garden Party. FQMS had supported his attendance at a conference in Oxford. Although problems with crossing at Rafah meant he missed all but the last day of the conference, he has talks scheduled at various hospitals before he returns to Gaza.

Our guests also got to talk with one of our trainees, Dr Maha Akkawi, and her family attend. For the last 2.5 years, Maha was training in haemato-oncopathology in Southmead Hospital, Bristol. She is about to return to Nablus, where she will be teaching and practising medicine at An Najah University.
