UAE medical team arrives Somali-Ethiopian borders for launching mobile clinic

posted on 21/08/2011: 767 views



A UAE medical mission arrived at the Somali-Ethiopian borders to inspect the health condition of thousands of refugees who walked long distances to reach scattered camps at Dadaab area.

Upon the findings of the tour, the team of doctors and surgeons will set up a mobile hospital to deliver diagnostic, therapeutic and preventive services to refugees who fled acute drought that hit the Horn of Africa countries.

Dr. Adel Al Shameri, CEO of Emirates World Humanitarian Mobile Hospital, described as 'tragic' the situation in these camps and called for stakeholders to mobilise all their resources and energies to provide best curative and preventive services in drought-stricken countries - Somalia, Kenya, Ethiopia and Djibouti - where more than 12 million people are facing a severe food crisis spawned by the region's worst drought in six decades.

He said the team had inspected health centres on Dadaab camp to assess their needs from doctors and medicines. The camp, the largest refugee settlement in the world, he said was built to accommodate 90,000 people but is now crowded with more than 400,000 people.

He added that his team was coordinating with the Kenyan authorities to locate the best site for mobile clinics. - Emirates News Agency, WAM
