At Hospital 57357, our ambition has no limits… we do not just dream, but we act to make our dreams come true. That is why before the lapse of one year since we have opened the 60bed Tanta Branch and added another 60 beds to the Hospital’s main branch, we have recently launched the construction of one of the largest medical, educational and scientific projects in Egypt, the Middle East and Africa.

and support this successful institution, this kind of work pleases God.”

It embodies a message based on compassion and giving.”
The support and recognition of Egyptians to 57357 was manifested in the presence of Sheikh Mohamed Imam, who conveyed the greetings and support of Egypt Grand Imam Prof. Ahmed Altaib. Also Father Bolous conveyed the admiration and full support of his Holiness Pope Tawadros II to 57357 and its projects. Sheikh Imam said “I assure those who contribute to the success of this great project that their work pleases God. To the working staff and donors who assess this Hospital and exert efforts to cheer the patients and make them happy, I say that their reward is equivalent to that of pilgrimage or Umrah and may exceed it. A person may pass away but his/her good deeds will always last.” Father Bolous also commented saying “God grants us success but we, His worshipers, must work and build … that is why some institutions succeed while others fail. Looking at 57357, we see an ongoing success story that started in the nineties. However, it is not just a successful healthcare center, but it stands as an example of compassion and giving.”
