Khartoum: AlTaghyeer

The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Maryam al-Sadiq al-Mahdi, on behalf of the Sudanese government, mourned the Italian doctor, Gino Estrada, founder and director of al-Salam Charitable Hospital for Cardiac Surgery in Soba, south of Khartoum.

He is the founder of non-governmental emergency organizations recognized by the United Nations, which has worked in 13 countries affected by conflicts and wars.

According to SUNA, since its establishment, al-Salam Charitable Hospital for Cardiac Surgery in Soba has been a regional center that provides free services for various interventions in the field of heart surgery.

SUNA indicated that the hospital remained free of charge, despite attempts by high ranking leaders from the former regime to push its founders to turn it into a hospital with expenses.

“As the Minister mourns Dr. Estrada, she mourns his humanity, nobility and dedication to serving the patients who attend his hospital without any discrimination,” SUNA reported.

They pointed out that the hospital’s services extended to a significant number of countries neighboring Sudan as well.

A video clip had circulated on the internet, showing the ousted president, Omar al-Bashir, negotiating with the founders of the hospital, during his visit, to turn it into a paid hospital.
