The Arab Contractors Construction Company will reportedly refurbish Egypt’s National Cancer Institute following a terrorist attack that left the building damaged at the beginning of August 2019.

According to news publication Egypt Today, the agreement was made between Egypt’s Prime Minister, Mostafa Kemal Madbouly, and Arab Contractors Construction Company’s CEO, Mohsen Salah, to quickly renovate the building in order for the institute to continue serving patients.

The blast took place in Cairo, close to the National Cancer Institute, reportedly killing more than 20 people and leaving around 50 with serious injuries.
