The mission was originally due to take place last year, however, it was postponed due to coronavirus pandemic.
This will be our second mission at Qena University Hospital.
Muntada Aid took its first mission to Qena in 2019. During the course of this operation, we performed 36 procedures and also provided training through workshops to around 100 medical staff.
The mission started on the 28th of June and continued until the 5th of July. The mission was managed by our Programmes Manager Kabir Miah, who has been leading our health missions across Asia and Africa for the past 6 years, and the medical team was led by Dr Abdullah Erden. During our mission in Qena, the team operated on all types of congenital heart defects from aortic valve stenosis, coarctation of the aorta, pulmonary valve stenosis, to other such types of heart defects.
