Hospital in Karbala performs one hundred low-cost open-heart surgeries

Imam Zain al-Abideen Hospital announced that it would soon begin its second campaign of performing one hundred low-cost open-heart surgeries for children. Head of the hospital’s media Mr. Mustafa al-Mousawi said, “Qualified heart surgeons have successfully performed the first surgery on a child patient.”

Al-Mousawi mentioned that the surgeries are majorly funded by the Imam Hussain Holy Shrine. “Fifteen cases in the first campaign were fully funded due to the patients’ extremely poor conditions. Our goal is to perform as many surgeries as needed.”

Imam Zain al-Abideen is affiliated with Imam Hussain Holy Shrine and had performed 100 open-heart surgeries in its first campaign in 2018.
