My son is a little old, but there are small children. I saw them and was devastated and upset with them. Where would the poor children go if the hospital was closed?” And she concluded her speech by saying: “The hospital cannot be closed, there are people who do not have to be treated.

Everything is perfect here. There is no discrimination between one child and another, and no offense to anyone. I hope that philanthropists will not stop donating to the hospital.” And she praised the level of service in the hospital: “57357 is unparalleled in cleanliness, and we choose food daily from the menu, and if the child’s condition deteriorates by half a degree, the emergency department rushes to the room to deal with the condition, and may God reward them with goodness.” Ibrahim’s father fights back his tears in the ward treating children with leukemia.
