On Tuesday, April 19, 2022, His Royal Highness Crown Prince Al Hussein bin Abdullah II of Jordan visited the King Hussein Cancer Center in Amman, Jordan.

The King Hussein Cancer Center (KHCC) was established in 2001, honorably bearing the name of His Majesty the late King Hussein of Jordan. The KHCC is accredited by the Joint Commission International (JCI) as a disease-specific Cancer center, making it the first center in the developing world and only the sixth worldwide to earn such a distinction.

KHCC is led by the Director-General, Dr. Asem Mansour, and the Medical Director and Deputy Director-General of the KHCC, Dr. Hikmat Abdel Razeq.

According to the Royal Hashemite Court, Crown Prince Al Hussein toured the:

“…KHCC’s pediatrics facilities, accompanied by Her Royal Highness Princess Ghida Talal, Chairperson of the Board of Trustees of the King Hussein Cancer Foundation and Center, commending the efforts of the KHCC’s staff, and the intensive care they provide to Cancer patients.

During the tour, the Crown Prince listened to a briefing by Princess Ghida, who noted that the center has become the first destination for cancer patients in the Middle East.

KHCC’s CEO and Director-General, Dr. Asem Mansour, noted that the center receives around 400 new cancer cases among children annually and hosts nearly 90 percent of cancer pediatric patients in Jordan.

Dr. Mansour added that the center has a 352-bed capacity and receives 14,000 inpatients annually, and 250,000 cases at outpatient clinics, noting that it includes over 300 specialized doctors and 1,000 nurses.

Two floors at the KHCC have been designated for child patients, with specialized clinics, intensive care units, and chemotherapy facilities, in addition to the ‘Heroes Cave’ child waiting area, which was refurbished upon Crown Prince Al Hussein’s request.

On Monday, March 21, 2022, Her Majesty Queen Rania of Jordan visited the cloud telephony communications company, Masqsam, in Amman, Jordan.

Now, I’m sure at this moment you’re wondering “what in the heck is a cloud telephony communications company?” Well, cloud telephony is an internet-based voice communication service (VoIP) where “…the telephony application is hosted by a third-party provider.” Still confused? In simple terms, according to Tech Target, cloud telephony is a:

“…type of unified communications as a service (UCaaS) that offers voice communication services through a third-party host. UCaaS replaces the need for conventional enterprise telephone systems, such as private branch exchange (PBX).”

Okay, enough of the techie stuff, let’s get back to the amazing Queen Rania.

Upon her arrival, Her Majesty was warmly greeted by the team behind the local cloud telephony company including its co-founders, CEO Mr. Sinan Taifour and the Director of Business, Mr. Fouad Jeryes. Thereafter Her Majesty participated in a meeting whereupon discussions focused on the “…inspiration behind its unique services and its plans for the future…” according to a press release.

Her Majesty Queen Rania completed her visit with a tour of the office, where she greeted Maqsam’s employees. The company employs 45 people, including a number with experience working with global tech giants such as Google, Amazon, Expedia, and Verizon. Last month, the company won grand prize at the LEAP Expo, a tech debut exhibition in Saudi Arabia.
