Queen Rania visits child cancer patients from Gaza at King Hussein Cancer Centre


Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah visited Wednesday pediatric cancer patients who were evacuated from embattled Gaza and to Jordan to continue their treatment at the King Hussein Cancer Centre (KHCC) in Amman.

She was also informed of the treatment protocols they receive at the centre, including psychological support.

The Chairperson of the King Hussein Cancer Foundation (KHCF) and Center, Princess Ghida Talal, lauded the Queen for her humanitarian efforts and directives to bring cancer patients suffering “extreme hardship” in Gaza to Jordan.

Her Majesty was re
ceived at the KHCC by Princess Ghida, KHCC Director General Dr. Asem Mansour, and the Foundations’s General, Nisreen Qatamish.
