Argentina and Barcelona legend is set to visit on Tuesday for a health campaign to fight Hepatitis C.

The Argentinian was expected to visit Cairo last Wednesday, but a statement was issued by the sponsoring company, which stated that Messi could not leave his team after their scathing loss at the hands of PSG in the Champions League.

The campaign is coordinated by Egypt’s Health and Tourism ministries, and launched by the Egyptian government in order to motivate patients of Hepatitis C from all around the world to seek treatment in Egypt, as it is cheaper and more effective.

The Barcelona forward was first scheduled to come to Egypt in December but had to postpone his trip after the Cairo cathedral bombing.
