AMMAN — Thirty-two patients recently received life-saving surgeries under the National Goodwill Campaign. 

Procedures ranging from eye surgery to orthopaedic and facial reconstruction operations were performed on the underprivileged patients at the capital’s Ibn Haytham and Specialty hospitals. 

HRH Princess Basma, president of the National Goodwill Campaign’s higher committee, visited the two private hospitals last week to check on the recuperating patients, who could not afford the surgeries without the campaign’s assistance.

Doctors who volunteered to perform the surgeries noted that all the patients are in stable condition. 

Princess Basma underlined the significant humanitarian role private hospitals play in alleviating the suffering of underprivileged patients as part of their corporate social responsibility towards the local community.

The National Goodwill Campaign, first launched by the Jordanian Hashemite Fund for Human Development in 1991, has signed a memorandum of understanding with several private hospitals to provide comprehensive medical care to underprivileged people from across Jordan.

In cooperation with the private sector, the campaign has enabled needy families to benefit from vital services by providing health and education assistance as well as income-generating projects.
