Famed American actor Danny Glover paid a visit to the Heart Centre at the Magdi Yacoub Heart Foundation (MYF) during a visit to Egypt's Aswan on Sunday.

Following his tour of the center, Glover praised the center's role in saving the lives of many patients, including children.

The visit is the actor's fifth to Egypt in recent years.

The Magdy Yacoub Foundation was created in 2008 by renowned Egyptian surgeon Professor Sir Magdi Yacoub with the mission of establishing an international medical center of excellence that offers state-of-the-art basic health services to the less privileged free of charge.

As part of the MYF, the Aswan Heart Centre provides world-class cardiac healthcare free of charge to the local community and the region.
