QATAR Red Crescent Society (QRCS) has sent a medical convoy to perform vital surgeries for Syrian refugees in Turkey. This comes as part of QRCS’ annual medical convoy programme, carried out in partnership with Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC).
In coordination with the Turkish government, the convoy will cover poor Syrian patients in Turkey, as well as some injured persons from northern Syria, where secondary health care services are inadequate due to the war.
The five-day mission will cost a total of QR143,000, funded mainly from the donations of benevolent Qataris. It is headed by Dr Abdullah Rashid al Naimi, board member of QRCS, urologist at HMC and general supervisor of the medical convoy programme.
More than 132 patients have been examined using all the necessary radiography and physiological tests. Based on the results of examinations, 13 urology, paediatric and ENT surgeries have been performed.
Throughout the mission, it is estimated to perform 40 surgeries at Sevgi Hospital in Reyhanlı Town, which hosts the surgeries and post-surgical medical care. According to Dr Naimi, the surgeries have had a success rate of 100 percent.
