Kuwaiti medical team treats Syrian refugees in Jordan


AMMAN-- Kuwait's voluntary team "Shefaa" provided on Wednesday medical care to more than 200 Syrian patients, conducting difficult and delicate surgical procedures during a humanitarian trip to refugee camps in Jordan.

Media coordinator for the 12-member medical team Tareq Al-Mulla told KUNA that the trip lasted for 10 days, during which the doctors conduct necessary tests and operations for refugees in agreement with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), charities and Jordanian hospitals.

He pointed out that the surgical intervention included removal of benign and malignant tumors from brains of a number of patients, with the help of Jordanian doctors.

The surgeons have also treated hydrocephalus, suffered by an eight-month-old child, in addition to treating a number of refugees with ill eyes.

He mentioned that the voluntary team had offered financial support for patients to cover costs of transportation, necessary analysis and diagnostic examination.
