Nahdet Misr Publishing House has contributed to Baheya’s Foundation paramount role in helping thousands of Egyptian women fight and overcome breast cancer through establishing a new Sonar room at the fourth “Early Detection” unit at Baheya’s hospital. The Sonar room will serve around 6000 women annually and enable them to get early detection and treatment for breast cancer.
The protocol, signed by Dalia Ibrahim, CEO of Nahdet Misr Publishing, with Eng. Majed Hamdi, Member of the Board of Directors at Baheya Hospital, comes within the framework of Nahdet Misr’s ongoing efforts to support Baheya in treating thousands of women free of charge, as part of the company’s various initiatives to support the community and provide a better life for all Egyptians.
Commenting on this collaboration, Dalia Ibrahim said: “The Sonar room, which is considered the first check point for women as an early detection tool is quite important as it will enable the hospital to accommodate more women and decrease the waiting lists; thus, ensuring their safety and successful treatment.” She added that “Treating women and saving their lives will ultimately keep their families safe and intact.”
From his part, Eng. Majed Hamdi, Member of the Board of Directors at Baheya Hospital said: “The hospital consists of three early detection units, and we are now about to finish all needed preparations of the fourth one, which contains a mammogram and several sonar devices dedicated to serve 20 to 25 thousand women annually. We are pleased to partner with Nahdet Misr to finish this unit as soon as possible so we can increase our capacity to serve more women to get their early detection and reassure their families and loved ones.”
This is not the first cooperation between Nahdet Misr and Baheya, last year the company has established a room in the third “Early Detection” unit to help Egyptian women with their courageous battles against this lethal disease.
