Mahmoud is now 12 years old, and he proved to everyone that he mastered some meals like a great chef, in addition to being proficient in the art of catering and dealing with customers and attract some of the foods served by the restaurant where he works.
His family tried to have an operation abroad, but he received a response from a European country through the Ministry of Health that his success rate was very low.
