Beirut, Lebanon, Saturday, July 31, 2010

Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser and Mrs. Wafaa Michel Sleiman, the First Lady of Lebanon, visited this evening the Children's Cancer Center in Beirut.

Her Highness started the visit by touring the center's main garden named "Qatar's Doha for Life" in appreciation of Her Highness for her monetary donation for the center in 2007. Her Highness toured as well the various sections of the Center such as the outpatient treatment section and the inpatient treatment section for cases receiving care inside the hospital, where she met a number of children patients to check on their health situation.

The Children's Cancer Center awarded Her Highness with a gold medal at the end of her visit as a symbol of appreciation for HH's donations and contributions in the center.

Her Highness expressed her gratitude for receiving this award hoping for a future mutual medical collaboration with the center and for benefiting from the expertise and the experiences in the field of pediatric cancer treatment in particular.

The Children's Cancer Center was established in Beirut in 2002. It is a non-profit medical institution dedicated to the comprehensive treatment of pediatric cancer in Lebanon and the Arab region relying on the best available researches and treatments in this field while providing a high quality medical care without imposing any financial burdens on the families.
