His Excellency Ibrahim Bumelha, Cultural and Humanitarian Advisor of the Ruler of Dubai and Deputy Chairman of Board of Trustees of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Charity and Humanitarian Establishment stated that the Establishment will cover all costs of the surgeries to be performed during the medical team’s visit to Egypt, and provides all logistic supports required to succeed the mission of this medical team which aims at treating as much Egyptian children as during this visit, which will extend to 22nd of April.
Bumelha has indicated that Nabadat campaign in Egypt aims at treating more than 50 Egyptian children with congenital heart defects. The campaign mainly headed to the poor class, which does not have enough money to cover the expensive costs of such kind of operations. Thanks to Nabadat campaign, the patients will not bear any costs for the operations or costs of recovery period after the operations.

Demand of these surgeries’ specialists is much higher than supply, so the Establishment cooperated with Dubai Health Authority to form and prepare “Nabadat” medical team with a highly qualified and skilled professionals in this field.
