My BF was diagnoised with Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and varicocele

He lives in the Middle East, but he is not a citizen of that country
Even though he was born there. Health care for non citizens is costly and limited
According to funds.

They told him that he needs surgery - the visiting French consultant doctors
But that due to the risky nature of the procedure he will need to go outside
Of the UAE inorder to receive help.

His always in pain, and the symptoms are so bad,
He faints and has periods of time where he doesn’t remember what he was
Doing it why.

I just need advice, his completely shutdown mentally and has
Given up all hope.

Can ppl get help by charities to go to the west to get surgery?
Do people from African countries need visa’s?

Any advice will help!

Thank you

You can try to reach out for clinical trials... good clinical trials for his condition and see if he qualifies.
