Three more injured Libyan patients arrived on Saturday from Libya on a 13-hour flight for treatment of wounds sustained in the revolution that ousted Muammar Qaddafi.
The three were met at the airport by a large number of cheering Libyans.
The first batch of Libyan war-wounded arrived in Toronto on March 5. Other groups will arrive later. Their treatment in Canada is being organised by the Libyan Medical Committee in Canada (LMCC) in collaboration with University Health Network.
The total number of injured Libyans, who will go to Canada for treatment has not been determined. However, LMCC says it is working to persuade more hospitals in Ontario to accept more of the wounded heroes. The amputees will be treated at West Park Rehab Centre in Toronto, where they will be under the supervision of the some of the world’s finest medical specialists. [/restrict]
