Egypt is a country with a population of a 100 million inhabitants with a high birth rate of 2.9; which means that we have around 3 million children born each year; within this rate around 35 thousand children with congenital heart disease; 50% of which will need intervention either surgical or non-invasive catheter procedures. This is a big load on the health economy of Egypt. Therefore, our support is directly needed and is fundamental in this area, because the National Health Insurance cannot cover all children with congenial heart disease, so they die on the waiting list unless they receive help from sources such as ours. The national Health Insurance does not cover also the noninvasive catheter procedures. The project will target 17'000 children all over Egypt approximately who need intervention whether catheter or open heart surgeries. Our target is the sick children who need catheter interventions for their heart defects. The project will help save families in the process, by saving a child. We expect to treat 30-35 children with heart defects in Cairo and Upper Egypt. This is a continuation project for phase 1 which was very succesful Our moto this time: Every Child Every where. 

In addition, as we are proposing to treat patients in remote upper Egypt (Sohag and Beni Suef Governorates), we will be training young doctors, technicians and specialized nurses in the cath lab and ICU on the procedures and the pre and aftercare of these children and transferring specialized knowledge.

A whole team of doctors, nurses and technician will travel to upper Egypt to perform the procedures and train the local team. A training course will be organized and local doctors and nurses from other remote hospitals will be invited to attend.

We expect to train 12 -15 doctors, nurses and technicians. We also expect attendance of about 70 doctors and 50 nurses and technicians to the lectures.
