Prof. of Clinical Oncology at Ain Shams University and Head of the BGICS, Dr. Hisham El-Ghazali, states: “in the 15th edition, we’ve decided to present a remarkable charity concert for the attendees. Selecting the international musician, Clayderman was a good choice.
He immediately agreed to take part in our charity event whose profits are dedicated to supporting and enhancing the life of patients suffering from that disease through undertaking international initiatives and benefiting from their experiences for carrying out experiments and reaching a consensus on managing breast cancer and gynecology in order to achieve women’s welfare.
Our greatest goal is to see Egypt cancer-free.
Furthermore, it is his third concert in Egypt, for he performed a concert in 2020. He also held an exclusive concert in Egypt (2016) in celebration of his 40-year anniversary of his unique career. However, this is the first time he performs a charity concert in Cairo.”
The attendees include: Dr. Mostafa Al-Feki, star Hussein Fahmi, Mahmoud Hemida, Salwa Mohamed Ali, Bushra, director Amir Ramses, along with a number of public figures.
