Hamdan bin Zayed orders medical treatment of Syrian girl

Amman: H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Ruler’s Representative in the Western Region and Chairman of the UAE Red Crescent Authority has ordered treatment of a four month old Syrian refugee girl who is diagnosed with a potentially fatal disease which requires a bone marrow transplant.

For the past few weeks, the parents of Lujain tried desperately to get her a life-saving treatment but were faced with high expenses of the surgery.

Sheikh Hamdan issued his directives to the UAE embassy in Amman to pay for Lujain’s surgery with bone marrow to be donated by one of her parents.
