Islamabad - A UAE Red Crescent Authority medical team arrived on Thursday to implement a health preventive programme in coordination with the UNICEF.

As soon as it arrived, the RCA team met with Dr Zahra Abed Raze, Health Specialist, UNICEF Pakistan Country Office, to discuss mechanisms of coordinating efforts for establishing a field hospital to work hand in hand with Ibrahim hospital in Peshawar, capital of the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, in the north west of Pakistan.

The UN official lauded the UAE efforts for assisting the Pakistani people at these delicate circumstances.

Later, the UAE Ambassador in Islamabad, Ali Al Awani, welcomed the chairman and members of the UAE RCA medical team and promised to extend all possible assistance to facilitate their humanitarian mission.

Leader of the RCA medical team Dr. Mohammed Shumais said the volunteer doctors will conduct a curative and preventive programme in floods-affected regions.

According to him, over 625,000 people including women and children will be vaccinated against diseases that are expected to spread due to lack of healthcare and clean drinking water like measles, cholera and tetanus. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
