In 2016, a memorandum of understanding was signed between Al Alfi Foundation, Dr. Magdi Yacoub Heart Foundation and Maghrabi Foundation.
The three foundations decided to join efforts to provide the highest level possible of medical care for the heart patients of Dr. Magdi Yacoub Heart Foundation in Aswan. The three parties acknowledge the importance of research and, for that reason, decided to collaborate to provide the research team of Aswan Heart Foundation with the necessary support to join the best universities and research centers in the world. The researchers, after they receive the adequate degrees, would come back to apply their research findings and provide the best medical care for the patients of Aswan Heart Centre.
AAF and Maghrabi Foundation are currently sponsoring 4 medical researchers to pursue their studies in Imperial College – UK and University College London (UCL) – UK…the prominent research universities.
