The children will receive treatment for a variety of serious heart conditions at NMC’s wide network of medical facilities around the world.

Khalifa Butti Bin Omeir, executive vice-chairman, NMC Health Plc, said that the treatment the young refugees will receive is a continuation of the legacy created by Shaikh Zayed. “Our late Father of the Nation, Shaikh Zayed was driven by a belief that all people should enjoy the utmost health and wellbeing,” he said.

“NMC Healthcare is proud to help continue our father’s vision by offering our advanced medical services to child refugees around the world. We look forward to providing each child who receives treatment with a lifetime of health, wellbeing and happiness, as this would have undoubtably been the desire of our late father,” he added.
