The Second World War might be an event resigned to history books and television for most people, but for those in the United Kingdom’s biggest city it is still taking its toll today.

Construction personnel working near the King George V Dock on the Thames River reportedly discovered a 1940’s era explosive lodged in the mud and quickly contacted the Metropolitan Police and Royal Navy to dispose of it. Authorities then imposed a 214-meter exclusion zone on the area, which forced the closure of the London City Airport and several surrounding businesses.

While smaller and less well known that it’s larger brother, Heathrow, the London City Airport still handles several hundred flights a day, and the latest closure is believed to have disrupted the plans of at least 261 different aircraft bound for the location.

“All flights today are canceled but some airlines have moved their flights to other airports – CityJet to Southend and Alitalia to Stansted”, the airport said in a statement.

When asked for a timeline of when passengers can expect to regain access to the London City Airport, Royal Navy technicians were unclear.

“The timing of removal is dependent on the tides, however, at this stage we estimate that the removal of the device from location will be completed by tomorrow morning” a spokesperson said.

The Navy clarified on the details, explaining “The first stage of the operation is to free the shell from the silt so it can be floated for removal…We will then attach high-grade military explosives before carrying out a controlled explosion…The aim is to cause as little disruption to the city of London as possible.”

Operations remain ongoing to remove the explosive, but authorities seem confident that the airport will be able to continue business as usual tomorrow morning.

As Valentine’s Day approaches, one group in Portland shows what real love means. Emmanuel Mercy Mission recently collected donations for medical supplies to help relieve the mass shortage in Ukraine. This Portland area mission gathered $900,000 of basic medical necessities from local individuals, manufacturers, and hospitals. The shipment full of diapers, crutches, wheelchairs, and other medical supplies is set to arrive in early April. There it will be divided and distributed to Ukrainian hospitals.

Since gaining its independence in 1991, the Ukraine has seen its share of fighting and war. The Eastern European country’s limited budget has left a gap in basic resources. The last four years have produced massive shortages, including water, power, and food. With the UN’s World Food Program set to withdraw aid due to lack of funds, humanitarian efforts like Emmanuel Mercy Mission’s are vital to keeping the country alive.

For Emmanuel Mercy Mission, this is more than just a love project. Many things has been brewing in their mind and heart and he recalled that it was like learning things to talk about with a girl that you are meeting for the first time and it seems to pulsating to him knowing that the Mercy mission would do a lot of good for the Ukrainians . This Portland non-profit was started in 1992 by refugees. They knew from personal experience what blessings and hardships were. Seeing the need in the communities they left behind, the mission came together to provide humanitarian aid at home and abroad to people in need.
Collaborating the last four years with Medical Teams International, the mission has put together three shipments of medical supplies to help Ukraine’s hospitals. Efforts like these from Portland bolster more than just the physical health of Ukrainians, it reminds these forgotten people that they are loved.

Dr. Saad Saad, is a pediatric surgeon raised in Kuwait and born in Palestine. Studying at Cairo University in Egypt he where he received his medical degree. Soon after graduating second in his class with honors, he came to the United States to do what he learned from Cairo University, completing his residency in pediatric surgery while developing new pediatric surgical procedures. In a 40 year span, Saad Saad has successfully performed thousands of surgeries on infants, young children, and even teenagers, whether they can afford the surgery or not. For example, Dr. Saad Saad has traveled to Jerusalem eight times on a medical mission to complete surgery on children that was too complex to be done locally, so he was willing to take out his time to save lives at no cost to the people. He took into account a statement from Abraham Lincoln that “We are all created equal in the eyes of God.” What that means to him being a surgeon is, all of the children were created with the same body parts that he works on, so there is no discrimination when it comes to the quality of life.

 

Some of his training that led to being able to perform these complex surgeries came from his mentor American Dr. H Biemann Othersen, the most accomplished pediatric surgeon in the United States. The most important lesson Dr. Saad Saad learned from his mentor was that, before you even perform surgery you must love to treat all children the same no matter where they are from, and no matter the background. His standard is always to be honest and kind, especially being aware that the child and the family dealing with such a difficult time are going to be more receptive and optimistic that the surgery will turn out well when you choose to carry yourself this way.

 

To this day, Saad Saad is consistently researching innovative ways to keep expanding his knowledge regarding pediatric surgery, making him even more valuable in the medical field. What he recommends for others after what he experienced in life is, to become successful in any venture just make sure you persevere with hard work and everything else will take care of itself! Learn more:  http://www.jerseyshoreuniversitymedicalcenter.com/jsumc/newseventsandclasses/pressreleases/Press-Release.cfm?customel_dataPageID_2021=495087
