We are delighted to present Prof Munjed Al Muderis who will be talking about his book Walking Free .
Prof Al Muderis is not only a Sydney surgeon celebrated for his pioneering technique which enables amputees to be Walking Free, but he, as a young doctor in 1997, had to flee from Saddam Hussein’s Iran or face certain death for refusing to mutilate the ears of army deserters. Coming to Australia in an overcrowded boat, held in Curtin Detention Centre for 10 months, he was finally able to find himself Walking Free in 2000.
Today, to add to his impressive medical career, he also gives generously of his time to many humanitarian organisations including Amnesty International, The Red Cross and UNHCR.
Do join us to hear to the remarkable story of a truly remarkable man.
