President speech

Dear fellow,

The refugees crisis in Europe and the Middle East will be the main topic of the 3rd Palestino French Medical Day JPFMC 2017.
We devote most attention to the interventions that were made by humanitarians, European officials and United Nations officials.

We will welcome on this day :
° Mr De Brouwer, Middle East Officer in DG ECHO Humanitarian Aid at the European Commission.
° Dr Seita, Director, of UNRWA in the Middle East.
° Dr Xavier Emmanuelli, founder of Social SAMU,  and many other consultants in diseases, allied to refugees, including tuberculosis.

We hope to meet you with many and that we will bring you social and medical knowledge concerning the care of the refugees. Everyone can be encouraged to help this fragile population.
We also have the pleasure to announce that we will be sharing a delicious meal with you, prepared by a great Damascus chief known internationally, who has taken refugee in France.
Finally we will close this memorable day with a theatre play by a great Palestinian writer Ghassan Kanafani about the Palestinian refugees, at the Algerian cultural center.
We count on your presence, your support and your solidarity in the same way as during the last two editions and therefore you will be very numerous on October 14th in Paris.
