The ‘Tour n Cure’ campaign provides Hepatitis C treatment as well as tourism packages for the visitors arriving in Egypt this year. The five-time Ballon D’or winner’s planned visit to Cairo was delayed two times. However, Messi had to arrive in Egypt last week. The trip got cancelled as Barcelona lost 4-0 against Paris Saint Germain at the Parc des Princes Stadium.
After Cairo bombing at St. Peter and St. Paul churches, Messi had postponed his visit which killed more than 29 people. Not to forget though, Egypt has achieved global recognition for fighting Hepatitis C, with the World Health Organization celebrating World Hepatitis C Day in Cairo in 2015.
