A visiting Saudi medical team is now in the provincial capital of Hadhramout, Mukalla, to carry out treatments and surgeries for 400 heart patients. The executive of Al-Balsam International Organization Emad Bukhari said the organization, in cooperation with the Heart Disease Charity, is carrying out this campaign of heart surgeries and therapeutic cardiac catheterizations (Balsam2) on Yemeni patients in Dar al-Hayat Heart Center in Mukalla.
