On July 22, 2022 a living donor liver transplant was done at IBN Sina Hospital supported by the Ministry of Health, Sudan. 

The recipient was a patient with Hepatitis B related end stage liver disease. His niece came forward to donate her right lobe of the liver. 

The donor and recipient were discharged home on the 5th and 11th post-operative days respectively.

 According to an official communication from the Rela Hospital, but this is the 1st time that the local doctors performed the surgery with conviction and fineness in Sina Hospital.

This liver transplant was definitely a culmination of a long-term efforts and commitment of these local doctors with guidance from Professor Mohamed Rela, the communication adds.
