February 24, 2014

A pair of Yemeni conjoined twins, born last Thursday at the Abha Maternity and Children’s Hospital, arrived at the King Fahd Medical City (KFMC) in Riyadh early this morning. The twins were brought to KFMC on the orders of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz, in order to receive the specialized care necessary to save their lives. After they are stabilized, the patients will be transferred to the King Abdulaziz Medical City of the Ministry of the National Guard.

Upon arrival at the hospital the children and their parents were received by a medical team, led by Dr. Sameh Abu Zaid. The father of the twins said that he had named his sons “Abdullah” and “Abdulaziz” and thanked the Saudi King for approving the treatment of his children.
