Litwack said due to the cooperation with the Heydar Aliyev Foundation, Azerbaijan will be the 49th country that the organization will cooperate with.
He stressed that over 2,000 children’s life was saved so far by physicians due to the support provided to this organization, founded in 1995.
“Due to the partnership relations built with the Heydar Aliyev Foundation, Azerbaijani children born with severe cardiac failure may be operated at the Wolfson Medical Center operating in Israel. Azerbaijani specialists will be trained within the project. Our organization is ready to provide support for the creation of a specialized medical center in Azerbaijan,” he said.
