* But what the heart of your relationship with children, you're a doctor who specializes in bones?
- Yes, doctor, bones, heart of my relationship with children is that the bone disease and heart are interrelated, and that the source of bone synthesis of blood cells, and this has a deep attachment to the body.

* Why do not you be interested in bone disease?
- Because I found the children with heart disease of more victims who are suffering in this country, and pushed me the most is to see children die in front of me in the hospitals and outside; and I found an outlet significant area of work in the heart of children and to respond by some supporters. During my time in a hospital I saw from a distance of fifty meters high fibrillation the heart of a child, which were infected with the disease in the heart, and Dr. Rosa you were treating her, the more I wanted to work in the field of children's heart.

* Does your spouse contributed to specialization in cardiology, Dr. Rosa in this work?
- Yes. The complementary and supportive to me actually, not because they are a cardiologist, but they had contributed, in my health and charity, a cause of impulsive towards addressing the heart of children.

* Before your medical in the area of children, what were your activities charity?
- I was and still working in the field of aid treatment for cases of pathological obstructed, which are identified either through personal research or through the information I receive for medical conditions by other persons directly or indirectly, and therefore, I examine the files of these conditions due that have been Find them whether they suffer from various diseases or cases of children infected with heart disease, at this stage with Dr. Rosa were used to confirm the diagnosis of diseases such cases, and thus looking for the source take care treatment.

It will also work on the rehabilitation of Yemen and the medical staff to provide medical supplies are urgently needed, which Istrozk of people who are standing obstacle in the implementation of activities in the country.
