KATHMANDU: The second batch of Emirati doctors arrived yesterday to take part in the humanitarian, dialogistical, curative, surgical and preventive medical mission being conducted by the UAE medical voluntary team to rescue those affected by the recent devastating earthquake that injured over 17, 000 and claimed the lives of 8, 413 people in Nepal.

The Emirati medical team is the first Arab medical team dispatched to Nepal in accordance with the initiative of the Zayed Giving Initiative, Saudi-German Hospital, Dar Al Ber Society and in collaboration with Kathmandu Teaching Hospital.

Dr. Reem Osman, Executive Director of the Saudi-German Hospital, said the Emirati doctors and nurses had commenced their work last week and treated hundreds of injured children and elderly people.

Emirati Surgeon Dr. Adel Al Shamri, Executive Director of the Zayed Giving Initiative, Chairman of the UAE voluntary medical team, said the quick response to the emergency medical mission reflects preparedness to provide the medical and humanitarian aid to alleviate the repercussions of the disaster that befell tens of thousands of Nepalese who had their homes destroyed and displaced by the earthquake.
