Poignant Art Exhibition at Hadassah Hospital

Sa'ad El-Kikh, from the village of Tsurif near Hebron, had an accident at work 18 months ago that mangled his hand. Hadassah's Dr. Carole Pidhorz saved his hand and reattached the palm. Four months later, El-Khikh started the long process of rehabilitation, working with occupational therapists at Hadassah Ein Kerem. El-Khikh, married and the father of four children, did not give up his love for painting. A few days after surgery, he began painting, using a special tool that was affixed to his hand at Hadassah.

His latest drawings are now on display at Hadassah, in an area where artwork by HMO employees usually hangs. Hands are a dominant theme in El-Khikh's paintings. "I feel as if my hands are tied if I cannot paint," he explains.
