The works will be completed in September. The project is part of the “Stop Cancer” campaign organized by the Scheherazade Foundation with the aim of drawing public attention to children's cancer and raising funds for renovating and equipping the Marie Curie hospital with up to date medical equipment.
Renovation works at the hospital started last June and by the end of this year four out of seven floors of the building will be finished.
“We plan to raise EUR 3.5 million from donations by the end of 2008,” said Wajiha Haris, president of the Scheherazade Foundation. Last year, the Vodafone Foundation ran projects in the medical sector worth more than EUR 420,000.
