Surgeries for Syrian refugees in Jordan
Kuwaiti surgeons treat ailing Syrian refugees in Jordan
AMMAN-- A group of Kuwaiti physicians began on Tuesday conducing intricate surgical procedures of various kinds on some 50 Syrian refugees residing in Jordan, overseen by Kuwait Red Crescent Society (KRCS).
The medical aid is part of a KRCS relief package for Syrian refugees in the Hashemite Kingdom, in conjunction with the Jordanian Red Crescent, which aims to meet the healthcare needs of Syrian refugees, said Kuwait's Ambassador to Amman Aziz Al-Daihani to KUNA.
The initiative comes as per instructions given by His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, who has been christened by the UN as a "Humanitarian Leader" given his immense contributions towards charitable causes, added the diplomat.
The Kuwaiti team of physicians will be carrying out 48 surgeries over the course of a three-day period, KRCS Chairman Dr. Hilal Al-Sayer told KUNA, saying the endeavor will be a collaborative effort with the venerable Kuwaiti charity's Jordanian counterpart.
The Kuwaiti physicians will be dealing with critical cases on hand, all of which require complex surgeries, according to the chief of the Jordanian Red Crescent Dr. Mohammad Al-Hadid.
He went on to thank Kuwait for the copious amounts of aid the country has given Jordan, never failing to answer the calls of humanity even in dire situations.
