Surgeon Swee Ang returned to Gaza in early 2009, and was overwhelmed with the devastation she experienced. Her article on what she found there – The Wounds Of Gaza – proved hugely controversial. Through discussion of the situation, Swee will describe her development as a Christian advocate of Palestine.
Swee Ang was an orthopaedic consultant for the UN in the Gaza Strip during the first Palestinian intifada in 1988- 89. She worked in Sabra and Shatilla Palestinian refugee camps in Beirut in 1982 and was a witness and survivor of the massacre that year. She is currently a surgeon at Barts and the Royal London Hospital.
