Deputy Representative of Japan to the Palestinian Authority Makoto Honda Monday attended the opening ceremony of the project for replacement of the laparoscopy system at Shepherd’s Field Hospital in Beit Sahour, a statement by the Japanese office.
Beit Sahour mayor, Hani al-Hayek, attended the ceremony in addition to representatives from local authorities and institutions.
The project was funded by the Government of Japan in March 2013, through its Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects (GGP).
Beit Sahour Cooperative Society for Health Welfare utilized the grant of $98,700 to provide the patients in need with appropriate laparoscopic surgery without excessive burdens by conducting open surgery or transferring them to other hospitals outside their area.
Honda emphasized Japan’s firm commitment of supporting Palestinian people from human security perspective as well as the importance of implementing social and economic development projects needed for Palestinian communities.
