A Kuwaiti med­i­cal vol­un­teer team dis­patched by Al-Rahma In­ter­na­tional Char­ity is of­fer­ing treat­ment and oper­a­tion of surg­eries for the Syr­ian refugees in Jor­dan as part of a re­lief and co­op­er­a­tion pro­gram be­tween Al-Rahma and Jor­dan’s Makassed Char­i­ta­ble Hos­pi­tal.

The team will pro­vide med­i­cal as­sis­tance and surg­eries for about 100 cases in dif­fer­ent fields, Spe­cial­ist Urol­ogy Dr Ahmed Al-Kan­dari, said yes­ter­day. Head of Syria and Turkey of­fice in Al-Rhama In­ter­na­tional and head of the del­e­ga­tion Waleed Al-Suwailem said this is the sec­ond med­i­cal cam­paign to be or­ga­nized by the char­ity as part of a work pro­gram that will last for four months. The es­ti­mated cost of the cam­paign, which be­gan to­day for about 100 pa­tients, at nearly $210,000, Suwailem said. Since the out­break of the Syr­ian cri­sis, the Char­ity has con­tin­ued to pro­vide aid and re­lief to Syr­ian refugees in var­i­ous ar­eas, prais­ing the fa­cil­i­ties of­fered by Jor­dan to the Kuwaiti re­lief teams and the role of the King­dom in ab­sorb­ing the Syr­ian refugees, he said.

In a sim­i­lar state­ment, Al-Makassed Hos­pi­tal’s Di­rec­tor Dr Ashraf Al-Nawafal­lah said that the co­op­er­a­tion of the hos­pi­tal with the Al-Rhama Char­ity be­gan with the con­struc­tion of this hos­pi­tal. The char­ity con­tin­ues to pro­vide as­sis­tance to the hos­pi­tal, Nawafal­lah said, prais­ing the ef­forts ex­erted by Kuwait to help the needy Syr­i­ans and oth­ers who de­serve help around the world. He also called for in­creased sup­port for Syr­ian refugees in pro­vid­ing the hos­pi­tal with more equip­ment, med­i­cal sup­plies and med­i­cal staff. —KUNA
