Seniors Own Real Estate were delighted to attend the 2016 MercyCare Oration with special guest Munjed Al Muderis. The highlight of the evening was meeting this courageous man who is one of the world’s leading orthopaedic surgeons. Hearing about his astonishing life story was truly awe inspiring. He fled Baghdad in 1999 as a junior surgeon in Saddam Hussein’s medical centre after being ordered to amputate the ears of military deserters. Surviving a treacherous boat trip to Christmas Island on a smuggler boat he then spent months at the Curtin detention centre in northern WA known only as the number 982. Now he lives in Australia and performs revolutionary surgery called “osseointegration” to patients who have lost limbs.
Seniors Own Real Estate are pleased to be supporters of MercyCare and it was wonderful to be part of such an insightful evening.
