The voluntary medical team of the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief) conducted in Khartoum, on Monday, up to 15 surgical operations.


These include two open-heart surgeries for adults and 13 heart catheterization operations.


The campaign, provided by the Riyadh-based center, aims to treat patients with heart diseases and to provide them with the necessary medical care.


This comes as an extension to the humanitarian efforts exerted by Saudi Arabia in a number of countries in need without discrimination.


Also in Bangladesh, KSrelief's voluntary medical campaign to combat blindness and diseases conducted 173 surgeries on its 3rd day, reaching to 331 operations in three days.


The campaign was launched according to the agreement signed by the Center with the International Sight Foundation.
