This will be our second mission in Qena in as many years.
Muntada Aid in June 2019 completed its first Little Hearts Mission in Qena. During the course of this operation, we performed 36 procedures and also provided training through workshops to around 100 medical staff. Whilst this endeavour was our 7th Little Hearts mission in this North African country, this marked the first such assignment in Qena.
Our long-term aim is to build capacity and provide the necessary training required by doctors and other support staff, in order to conduct similar operations on children in Egypt and other North African countries. We have agreed in principle with Mansoura University hospital where we will be providing doctors with training and other related support to practice as paediatric heart surgeons.
