DUBAI, 15th April, 2017 (WAM) -- A team of Nabadat, a joint initiative launched by Dubai Health Authority, and Mohammed bin Rashid Charity and Humanitarian Establishment, arrived in Egypt's capital Cairo on Friday to conduct free complicated cardiac surgeries for poor children.
Nabadat, which means heartbeat in Arabic, stated it would conduct surgeries on 15 children suffering from congenital heart defects on the first day of its charitable medical mission in Egypt. The operations will be conducted at the Cardio-Vascular Diseases Department in Ain Shams University Hospital.
