NOUAKCHOTT, Mauritania: The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief), in cooperation with the Muslim World League (MWL), is supporting Mauritania’s medical sector through a voluntary medical campaign offering specialist heart surgery.
Since the beginning of the campaign, the volunteer medical team has successfully performed 20 open-heart surgeries and 39 cardiac catheterization surgeries — a procedure used to diagnose and treat cardiovascular conditions.
The project is one of several humanitarian projects being implemented by the Kingdom in the country.
The project aims to treat patients from low-income families.
In Nigeria, KSrelief, in cooperation with Al-Basar International Foundation, carried out 152 surgeries, examined 1,006 patients, distributed 376 glasses and provided 842 prescriptions as part of a campaign to combat blindness.
The campaign benefits families and individuals of limited income.
