Dr. Hossam Badrawi
I have known Dr Badrawi since 1990. He is a wonderfully compassionate individual who cares deeply about the future of Egypt. The young people in Egypt should place their trust in him and give him their support. He will not let you down. I wish him the best and pray for his success.

As a politician I know nothing of Doctor Badrawi, as an OB/GYN, he was amazing, as an expat in Cairo he tended to me and a lot of my friends, as a professional and a doctor who cared for his patients. Theresa
