Amman: Two ambulance vehicles and two buses for transporting Syrian refugees across the Syrian-Jordanian border to Za'atari refugee camp on Thursday were donated by UAE's Red Crescent to the International Organisation for Migration (IOM).

The donation was delivered by RCA's Secretary General Ateeq Al-Falahi to IOM Jordan Chief of Mission Davide Terzi during a visit by representatives of international relief organisations to the UAE-Jordanian field hospital, deployed at the refugee camp north of Jordan near the border with Syria to help Syrians displaced from their country.

Six other ambulance vehicles will be delivered to the international organisation within days.

This came during a visit by the IOM official, Andrew Harper, UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) Representative, Josephine Mahiga-Janbi, World Food Program (WFP) Syrian Refugee Operation in Jordan and Mesha'l Abdul Karim, Advisor to Jordan's Red Crescent to the field hospital.

70000 blankets, 1000 stoves, 20000 tons of palm dates and a large quantity of medicines were given out to refugees through the UAE-Jordanian field hospital since the launch last February of RCA's fund raising campaign "They Called for Help-- We Responded" which raised Dh 45 million for Syrian refugees, according to Al-Falahi.

One hundred prefabricated homes were delivered by the UAE's humanitarian major to Za'atari refugee camp to accommodate Syrian refugees, the RCA official said adding that assistance by RCA's Jordan operation reached twenty thousand Syrian families and ten thousand people were treated at the field hospital.

Tens of volunteer doctors, nurses, health professionals, technicians and administrators from the UAE, Jordan and other countries jointly run the field hospital's clinics and provide free full medical care for thousands of Syrians who were displaced to the Jordanian territory.

Representatives of the international agencies hailed the UAE's humanitarian initiatives to help the refugees whose humanitarian conditions were described by Terzi as "tragic". – Emirates News Agency, WAM
