Curry Tea with Refugee/Surgeon Munjed Al Muderis
Saturday, 31 October, 2015 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM$15
In 1999, Munjed Al Muderis was a young surgical resident working in Baghdad when a squad of military police marched into the operating theatre and ordered the surgical team to mutilate the ears of three busloads of army deserters. When the head of surgery refused, he was executed in front of his staff. Munjed’s choices were stark–comply and breach the medical oath ‘do no harm’, refuse and face certain death, or flee. That day Munjed’s life changed forever.
Hear Munjed’s extraordinary true story first hand, how he fled war-torn Iraq and came to Australia as a refugee by boat, spent months in the Curtin detention centre and went on to become one of Australia’s top pioneering orthopaedic surgeons.
