Despite substantial oil reserves, Libya is facing economic collapse, political instability, and ongoing conflict between violent militias that has forced most of its medical professionals to leave the country in recent years.
Most of the children in Libya suffering from this crippling disease lack access to specialist care due to the ongoing conflict and poor socio-economic family situation.
We aim to provide quality and free access to such treatments to as many children as possible in Libya.
This is Muntada Aid’s 39th Little Hearts mission overall. Since the start of the programme, we have treated over 2300 children in 11 different countries for various heart conditions.
