We are incredibly proud of village resident Prof. Abd Al-Roof Higazi, head of the Hadassah Medical Center’s Department of Clinical Biochemistry, who has made a significant breakthrough in understanding the pathology of Covid-19. As Hadassah explain: "Researchers around the world have been puzzled by a deadly COVID-19 complication that affects 30 percent of patients: the formation of large and small blood clots that create lethal blockages in the patient’s lungs, kidneys, heart, and brain... Higazi... has identified the mechanism that causes these clots."

We are deeply honoured to be supporting a village that is home to such essential pioneers.
