To make sure help went to the areas of most need, St Mark Universal Copts Care drew up a map of all existing and developing healthcare centres and hospitals in Egypt.
From this work we identified seven areas of desperate need, and we are now working to develop four international hospitals and three medical centres. This is expected to take three to four years with an estimated cost of LE 170 million Egyptian pounds and a further LE 80 million for equipment. This project is called the Sehaty Project. St Mark Universal Copts Care is working in partnership with the Papal Office for these projects to construct healthcare centres and hospitals, run to the highest standards of hospital management, and providing high quality healthcare services to those in need.
Progress to date
2017 has seen the construction of the inaugural ‘Sehaty’ medical centre in Faqous, El-Sharqia, to serve over six million people in the local region. The design is the product of extensive planning and evaluation of local needs, and the facility provides a polyclinic, with outpatients, radiology and day surgery centre.
Sehaty will continue a programme to establish six further new build hospitals and medical centres in Aswan, Qena, Menia, Giza and Behira. The groundwork for these projects has already taken place and construction is underway at three of the sites.
