In addition to surgical operations, the Chaîne de l'Espoir Luxembourg carried out early detection of hip dislocation on hundreds of children in both Amman and Irbid, a city located 30 km north of the capital.

Programmed initially within the framework of missions of the Chaîne de l'Espoir (France) with the financial support of the European Union - Humanitarian Assistance and Civil Protection (ECHO) - , our missions have been organized and financed independently since September 2019.

Mission Dakar  2019

The ENT surgery and training mission conducted from May 11 to 18, 2019 by Doctor Luc Schroeder was placed under the theme of the surgical treatment of cervico-facial malformations and pathologies and the management of otological pathologies in children. Almost 15 small patients were operated on on this occasion. At the University Hospital, a conference on clinical otology brought together ENT and pediatric students and interns as well as their teachers and the management of the Albert Royer Hospital.


Several interviews with the latter made it possible to define the structure, scope and future mission of the new pediatric ENT service which will become the reference service in the matter in Senegal.

In parallel to the mission, the Chaîne de l'Espoir Luxembourg dispatched medical equipment donated by the Center Hospitalier du Nord - Ettelbruck which will be used to equip the operating theater of the Albert Royer Hospital.


The previous year, Dr Schroeder accompanied by Mrs Dany de Muyser, director of the Chaîne de l'Espoir Luxembourg, had carried out an ENT mission within the same hospital by participating in a multidisciplinary medical project of the Chaîne de l'Espoir Belgium.

Condamné en raison de son état très dégradé, le bloc opératoire du CHNEAR, ne permettait plus d’accueillir les petits patients qui devaient être réorientés vers d’’autres unités hospitalières. En collaboration avec la Chaîne de l’Espoir Belgique et avec l’aide d’un généreux donateur, la Chaîne de l’Espoir Luxembourg a réuni plus des deux tiers des fonds nécessaires pour la construction d’un nouveau bâtiment abritant le bloc opératoire et son équipement médical. L’avancée des travaux et leur bonne exécution ont pu être suivies par notre partenaire local, AMS, qui fournit régulièrement à notre ONG un état détaillé des lieux, photos à l’appui.
