This move comes after the positive results achieved by al-Balsam in the successful treatment of heart patients in Yemen, Mukalla, during the month of May.

The organization conducted many heart surgeries for patients in need, including 12 open-heart surgery and 125 catheterizations.

It also came at the request received by the organization from the Yemeni Ministry of Health and Population based on a appeal from the Nabd el-Hayat Center located in the city of Mukalla on the need to perform urgent surgeries for a number of heart patients in need.
