The recently-launched UAE Humanitarian Field Hospital for Children has treated 1500 cases so far in flood-hit Pakistani villages, according to Dr Adel Al Shamri, the Chief Executive of Zayed Giving Initiative and executive director of the UAE World Humanitarian Mobile Hospital.

The new fully-equipped hospital which has launched the "Kawafel" (Arabic for convoys) operation to provide full medical diagnosis and treatment to villagers affected by the floods refers cases which require surgical intervention to the UAE World Humanitarian Mobile Hospital which is now stationed in Sindh, he added.

Thousands of Pakistani villagers will benefit from the humanitarian initiative over the coming months, he noted.

The move follows the directives of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan to launch the hospital under patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak, Chairwoman of General Women Union and Chairperson of the Supreme Council for Motherhood and Childhood, and in line with the initiative of Sheikh Hamdan Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Representative of the Ruler in Western Region and Chairman of the Red Crescent Authority. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
