The Ivorian First Lady stated that in addition to these implants, Lalla Asmae Foundation had donated an ENT surgical microscope and a micromotor to the Mother and Child hospital in Bingerville, pointing out that this cutting-edge equipment had enabled the team of Moroccan and Ivorian doctors to carry out the meticulous surgical procedures begun on October 2.

Ouattara pointed out that the young patients who received the implants are cared for free of charge by the Children of Africa Foundation throughout their hospital stay.

The Ivorian First Lady stressed that Lalla Asmae Foundation is also committed to sharing knowledge and expertise, by exchanging innovative surgical techniques between Moroccan and Ivorian health professionals, thus strengthening the bonds of friendship and cooperation between the two countries.
