Kuwaiti Ambassador to Egypt, Mohammad Al-Thuwaikh, donated to Abu Al-Reesh University Hospital, Tuesday, a mobile x-ray machine used to scan infants.

The donation is part of Kuwait Embassy’s philanthropies in Cairo, and aimed at helping in treatment of children in Abu Al-Reesh Hospital, Al-Thuwaikh told reporters, after donating the x-ray machine.

Kuwait Women Committee had recently succeeded in collecting the necessary funding, to support programmes related to children, health, education and social services, he said, and part of the funding was used to purchase the x-ray machine.

Al-Thuwaikh explained, the x-ray machine was designed to scan infants born before their due time. He hoped the new device could contribute to better health services for newborn babies. “Philanthropy is deep-rooted in Kuwaiti socieity and supported by the Amir, Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah,” said Al-Thuwaikh.

Dr. Rasha Ammar, Director of Abu Al-Reesh Hospital, said, the x-ray device included the latest technology installed in mobile x-ray machines.

She said, the new machine would be used inside incubation units, which includes 40 incubators.

She thanked the Embassy and the Kuwaiti people, for this “humane donation, which will contribute to providing better services” in the hospital.
