Egyptian Girl Plays Violin in London to Help Fund Mersal Hospital

To help make sure Mersal Pediatric Hospital keeps doing their good work, six-year-old Lilly Elwardany has been busking on the streets of London with her talented violin skills.

The Mersal Pediatric Hospital is a non-profit dedicated to providing free medical treatment to children across Egypt whose families might not otherwise afford it. And they have a little fan in the United Kingdoms: a six-year-old Egyptian girl who is raising money for them with her violin!


Officially established in 2015, Mersal is dedicated to making treatments for everything from cancer to mental illness to disabilities as accessible as possible without any discrimination. As a non-profit, however, they are powered in large part by donations. To help make sure they keep doing their good work, six-year-old Lilly Elwardany has been busking on the streets of London, collecting money from passersby who are drawn in by the sounds of her talented violin playing.


Her efforts aren't just limited to London. Elwardany has opened a GoFundMe to get as many people as possible to contribute to the cause.
