My Dear Donors,

First I would like to thank you all for your generous contrbutions to help poor children with congenital heart defects over the past four years. I would like to thank all medical staff who are volunteering their time and expertise to help children with heart conditions in remote areas of Egypt like Upper Egypt (Sohag and Assiut and Beni Suef).

Unfortunately economic status in Egypt is getting disasterous with the EGP losing more than half of its value. It is soaring expensive for 90% of the population to make ends meet. Almost 40% of the poplulation earn less than one USD a day according the World Bank reports on Egypt. The funds from yourselves are helping those poor children as the government can not cope with the needs. Help from NGO and society members is mandatory.

GlobalGiving donations are added to Heart to Heart project Global Grant funds from Rotary International and Rotary clubs reaching 76K USD in Heart2Heart Phase 4. We have started working in  the hospitals in Upper Egypt we have done 25 procedures and cure more children. We will start in Cairo and Alexandria   in the near future. We expect to treat 35 patients by the end of March 2024. So please keep donating and keep following our peogress and keep your support high and spread the news to your families and friends. We have treated further 15 patients with these more outside GlobalGiving funds while waiting for the funds on GlobalGiving to reach us in good sums. The average cost around 2600-2800 USD per patient which is extremely expensive and beyond 99% of Egypt population abilities. So we are extremely grateful to our supporters. These children suffered from either holes in their hearts or narrowing of vessels or valves. They had non-invasive catheter procedures to close the holes using state of the art recent technology devices or balloon dilate the stenotic valves or vessels. The consumables eg (devices, balloons stents ... etc) are extremely expensive and consume 80% of the budget allocated to each patient averaging 2200 USD per device. The rest is paid to the hospital as fees. All doctors are volunteers. The advantages of such state of the art technique is that patients go home the next day completely cured. No added risk of ICU stay, or blood transfusions and no disfiguering scars. I would like to attach all the patients data however this is against GlobalGiving reporting policy despite having all relevant consents. Those of you who wish nore information on the patients please email me: elsisi96@yahoo.com. We will continue our work we have very long waiting lists. Egypt is a country of 110 million with high birth rate. The Governement of Egypt is still incapable of funding all the operations needed. We are dependant on your cintinued giving.

Please continue to donate, your donations are mandatory.

Yours Dr Amal El-Sisi
