Nepal November 2017

22. 09. 2017
We are delighted to announce that our next mission to Nepal (4-19th November 2017) will be attended by historically the most numerous team in the history of the African Heart Foundation. This time, with help of a local cardiac surgeon and our close friend Kaushal Tiwari, we will not do only echocardiography screening, but we will also bring medication supplies, which will be distributed to local poor patients. Members of the mission will be : Hasam Khanar (Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi) ,Tereza Novakova, Maria Holicka (Faculty hospital Brno Bohunice), Tereza Riška Tylečková, Adéla Gábrlíková (Faculty hospital Ostrava), Petr Kala, Markéta Rozhoňová (students of 2nd Faculty of Medicine in Prague) and members of the foundation Michal Pazdernik and Petr Fajkus. Just for the sake of interest, all team members will pay for their flight tickets, accommodation and food from their own savings. At the end we would like to thanks one of the most inspirative and hardworking cardiologist in the world, dr. Julia Grapsa, who again helped us with staff and echo machines recruitment.
 
 

Many thanks to all who cooperate with us on internship

21. 08. 2017

Internships of our students would not be possible without high quality mentors. They do everything for free in their free working hours, for which they deserve tremendous respect and thanks. This week, Esraa H. Hussien and Roaa Alrofaay Hagar spend at the Department of Cardiac Surgery - IKEM, led by doctors Martin Pokorný and Peter Ivak. Girls observe daily open heart surgeries such as aortocoronary bypasses or heart valve surgeries.
