The King recently left Wellington Hospital in London where he spent seven weeks in a private suite to have a delicate hip operation. He is spending time convalescing in London before returning to Riyadh. Dr. Al-Hoss had talks with King Khalid in Saudi Arabia at the end of last year during a Middle East tour in search of funds for the rebuilding of Lebanon which has been ravaged by the civil war. King Khalid pledged an immediate five million dollar (3.3 million pounds sterling) grant to help the 300,000 people left destitute by the war.
