Monaco’s Cuomo Foundation inaugurated the Cuomo cardio-pediatric centre in Dakar, Senegal, on February 2, in the presence of France’s First Lady Brigitte Macron and Marième Sall, her Senegalese counterpart, local French language daily Monaco Matin reports.

The centre covers more than 2,200 square metres and in addition to two operating theatres has associated resuscitation, hospitalisation and consultation suites.

The centre aims to perform 500 surgical procedures a year, to make a massive difference given that between 800 and 1,000 children are born in the country each year with congenital heart disease.

Founded in 2001 in Monaco, the Cuomo Foundation, chaired by Maria Elena Cuomo, works in the fields of education, culture, and the environment.
