The UAE Red Crescent Society is about to complete the first stage of the construction of the Sheikha Salama bint Butti Eye Hospital in Nablus, West Bank, at the cost of Dh. 11 million. The hospital, which is considered the first specialised medical centre in Palestine, will extend medical services to two million Palestinians of the West Bank citizens, including some of the residents of Palestine 48 areas and it is expected to be inaugurated within the next three months Khalifa Nasser Al Suweidi, UAE RCS Board Chairman.



He also said that the medical assistance being provided by the UAE RCS to the Palestinians constitutes more than 40 per cent of the total assistance provided by the UAE RCS to Palestine, especially after the recent uprising.



He further added that the idea of building an eye hospital had become necessary due to the large number of Palestinians who suffered eye injuries during the aggression carried out by the Israeli forces in the Palestinian territories. (The Emirates News Agency, WAM)
