We’ll only be a few minutes, just enough time for a sip of hot coffee, or jebena as it’s called here, named after the ceramic cup which it is made and kept hot in.
Saad is a mother. A proud, dedicated mother who took a flight from Uganda to Sudan with her son, and stood alongside him for the entire delicate process of heart surgery.
Saad is the mother of Ashraf, a 9-year-old boy who, after an unsuccessful and long hospital admission in his country, took a flight from Uganda to Sudan to treat his blocked cardiac valve and finally have a new start.
December 2019: we took this picture at the Salam Centre for Cardiac Surgery.
Saad is now a mother who can breathe a sigh of relief. Saad is the mother of a little boy with a smile that signifies recovery.
To Saad and all parents, happy #WorldParentsDay.
