DAKAR, 25th May, 2022 (WAM) — The Zayed Charitable and Humanitarian Foundation (Zayed CHF) has laid the foundation stone for the Cheikha Fatima Maternity and Childhood Hospital in Dakar.
The ceremony took place during the visit of Hamad Salem bin Kardous Al Ameri, Managing Director of Zayed CHF, to Senegal to lay the foundation stone of the hospital, in the presence of Madior Diouf, Minister of State of Senegal.
The project, which is expected to be completed in two years and costs US$1.5 million, is part of the foundation’s efforts to establish charitable and humanitarian projects overseas.
When complete, it will be a distinguished addition that will help improve health services in Senegal.
The Zayed CHF delegation met Macky Sall, President of Senegal, to convey the greetings of the President His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan; H.H. Sheikh Nahyan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Chairman of the Board of Zayed CHF; and H.H. Sheikh Omar bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
During the meeting with Diouf, the delegation discussed their cooperation in the health sector and presented the details of the hospital.
Zayed CHF continues his humanitarian efforts in line with the vision of the UAE, implementing sustainable development programs and projects, Al Ameri said, noting that this approach reflects the legacy of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.
