Mumbai: Aster MIMS and Aster Medicity have signed an
agreement with the Yemen Embassy to provide free liver transplant services to
ten underprivileged Yemeni Patients.
This partnership was made official in the presence of HE
Abdulmalik Abdullah Al-Eryani, Ambassador of the Embassy of the Republic of Yemen,
and Dr. Anes Hasan, Medical Counsellor of the Yemen Embassy in India, formally
signing the agreement in Delhi.
As part of the agreement, Aster will facilitate liver
transplants for patients suffering from chronic liver disease. The funds for
their treatment would be borne by Dr Moopen's
Foundation and other charity organizations. The embassy will
identify and endorse these patients' financial status and recommend them to
Aster for liver transplant. The complete treatment cost will be borne by Aster.
Patients just have to bear their travel and logistics expenses during their
stay in India. Apart from this, Aster will also provide a special discounted
package for other patients from Yemen requiring liver transplants.
