Sana'a - The UAE Red Crescent Society medical team, currently on a humanitarian mission in the Yemeni Island of Suctra, has examined 1950 eye patients and conducted 140 eye surgeries since November 18. Dr. Saleh Al Taie, head of the team, expressed his satisfaction at the performance of the team and the success of operations. The team plans to examine 2500 cases and operate 300 surgeries.



Al Taie toured the RCS medical camp established at Hadipo hospital on the island and offered quantities of medicines. The RCS official inaugurated the society's anti-malaria campaign in cooperation with the Yemeni health authorities and WHO under a nation-wide drive to combat the fatal disease. Al Taie said the Society had contributed in setting up 16 anti-malaria centres.



'The RCS offered around 15,000 mosquitoes-resistant covers, 500 kilograms of insecticide and 21 microscopes in addition to other medical supplies to the campaign,' he added. The team also took part in the third international symposium on malaria and a conference on immunization against polio. It also held talks with the UNICEF Regional Manager in Yemen on ways of enhancing joint partnership. (The Emirates News Agency, WAM)
