Healing the injured
"At Old Navy, we promote and acknowledge our retail team members who volunteer," Mary says. "We want our employees to create beautiful moments for our customers that brighten their day and provide them with a pleasant experience in what can be a difficult world."
To thrive, today's leaders must have more than just technical talents. Soft qualities such as kindness, empathy at work, and honest communication are essential for the future workforce.
"It's not enough to just show up and perform your job," Mary explains. "Everything you do revolves around people. Patience, resilience, kindness, and a genuine desire to brighten someone's day are required for success."
'I was inspired to start aiding wounded and sick children in difficult areas like the Palestine region long before I founded Little Wings. I was grateful for the financial security offered by the UAE and chose to devote all of my leisure time and knowledge to help the sick and underprivileged.'
Dr. Sinclair traveled to Palestine with a couple of nurses in 2007, and upon discovering that there were hundreds of children in need of assistance, he approached the Palestine Children's Relief Fund (PCRF) and volunteered his services. Much like-minded medical personnel followed him, and they began making these excursions, first to Ramallah and subsequently to the Gaza Strip.'
'The kids regard me as family. When we go out there twice a year, we see at least 200 outpatients and prioritize the children who need emergent surgery.
The doctors and nurses work at least 16 hours a day and see approximately 100 children per day. During a single stay, we do at least 80 procedures. We fly in for at least 2-3 weeks so that the children who have had surgery can receive post-operative assessment and physiotherapy. It's an exhausting job, but it's extremely rewarding,' said Dr. Sinclair, who has flown in critically ill children for intensive surgery and care on rare occasions. 'I'm minimizing that today because we've realized that with these monies, I can help a lot more kids.’
Dr. Sinclair is entirely dedicated to his work and considers himself fortunate that his vocation allows him to serve children. 'I am enthusiastic about rehabilitating young children and am grateful to have the professional abilities to do so. Seeing the joy on the face of a small child who has been injured and is in pain but is now able to walk is priceless. In the last two decades of his work, Dr. Sinclair has helped hundreds of children in Gaza stand on their own two feet and give them the best chance at a new life.
