The Emirates World Humanitarian Mobile Hospital has received an official invitation to provide its various medical services in the Egyptian villages. The Emirates World Humanitarian Mobile Hospital (Elaaj) is a humanitarian initiative launched by Zayed Giving Initiative to deliver specialised medical services free of charge to the needy patients in the UAE and worldwide.

As per the invitation extended by a number of health and educational institutions in Egypt, Elaaj will jointly implement healthcare programmes in the villages in partnership with the Egyptian Volunteering Society and Ain Shams University.

A wide range of curative, surgical, preventive, awareness and training programmes will be coordinated by the UAE embassy in Egypt and other official authorities in both countries.

Egyptian Ambassador to UAE Tamer Mansour said that the Emirates World Humanitarian Mobile Hospital has made many achievements at the global level and has been able to achieve a model of excellence for joint medical work.

Implemented in partnership with the ministries of health in the host countries, the initiative targets the most vulnerable sections of society, especially children and elderly people in remote areas. "A team of doctors and surgeons from both countries have been formed to implement the initiative and the Mobile hospital will soon be on ground in the villages", said the Egyptian ambassador.

The first civilian mobile hospital in the world, the Emirates World Humanitarian Mobile Hospital boasts a well-equipped medical facility and an elite team of healthcare professionals comprising specialist doctors, nurses, technicians and administrative cadres.

The Emirati cardiac surgeon, the chairman of the Zayed Giving Initiative and Executive Director of Emirates World Humanitarian Mobile Hospital Dr. Adel Al Shamari said that preparations are in full swing to mobilise the hospital across the Egyptian villages.

Emirates World Humanitarian Mobile Hospital is well equipped with the latest mobile diagnostic systems and has 25 beds. It includes specialised surgery units, medical instruments, intensive care units, pharmacy, laboratory, radiology department, maintenance department, generators and medical supplies for short periods. - Emirates News Agency, WAM
