She will continue to need neurological rehabilitation and physiotherapy.” El Aty, who is from Egypt, went to Saifee Hospital in Mumbai for pro-bono surgery thanks to Dr. Muffazal Lakdawala, who responded to pleas for help from El Aty’s sister, Shaimaa on Twitter. After a fundraising effort, El Aty was flown to India on a chartered cargo plane. Dr. Muffi Ladawala/Twitter “She came on a chartered cargo plane and goes back as a passenger on a flight in Business Class.” Save Eman Cause Before arriving at Saifee Hospital, El Aty had been confined to her bed for the last two decades in deteriorating health, particularly after a stroke two years ago that further impaired her speech and mobility. El Aty is now on her way to the United Arab Emirates, where she’ll continue rehabilitation closer to her family in Egypt.
