ECN also pays American architects to collaborate on construction projects for the new extension of Children’s Cancer Hospital Egypt 57375. Simultaneously, your donations are bolstering the relationship between American and Egyptian medical institutions, in general and on an individual doctor and staff member level. Through the strengthening of these relationships, valuable information is exchanged between the two countries and therefore more children are cancer-free. Your donations are ultimately put towards the greater good of humanity.
