UAE field hospital in Sindh treats 200 cases

posted on 13/09/2010: 647 views



The UAE World Humanitarian Field Hospital for Children on Wednesday started providing curative, surgical, preventative and training services to children affected by the floods in Pakistan. It received more than 200 patients in Sindh.

The hospital's supporters said the service reflected the strength of ties between the two countries, and their concerted efforts to limit the effects of the devastating flood that caused dozens of deaths, especially among children. A total of 3.5 million children have been left vulnerable by the floods.

The move follows the directives of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan to launch the hospital under patronage of Her Highness Shaikha Fatima Bint Mubarak, Chairwoman of General Women Union and Chairperson of the Supreme Council for Motherhood and Childhood, and in line with the initiative of Sheikh Hamdan Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Representative of the Ruler in Western Region and Chairman of the Red Crescent Authority.

Supervised by the UAE Pakistani Arab International medical team, the hospital is designed as a joint, genuinely humanitarian partnership between public institutions, corporations and non-profit organisations.

Dr Eshrat Al Ebad Khan, Sindh province governor, said the UAE had demonstrated a model of distinguished humanitarian work involving highly equipped, mobile field hospitals operated by doctors from around the world.

He thanked the UAE leadership and government for their support to the people of Pakistan during their time of suffering.
