KSrelief signs 2 agreements to boost medical services to Syrians
The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center
signed two agreements on Thursday with the International Society for the Care of
Victims of Wars and Disasters, on the sidelines of the Riyadh International
The first agreement initiated the launch of a mobile clinic system for those
affected by the Syrian earthquake. Some 20 clinics will be stocked with medical
and surgical supplies, as well as infant formula. The plan is expected to help
more than 200,000 people.
The second deal calls for KSrelief and the Syrian refugee charity to provide
health care as well as psychological, social, and nutritional support to 100,000
Syrian refugees in Lebanon.
The aid aims to support existing national tuberculosis and infectious disease
programs, raise nutrition and hygiene awareness, help routine vaccination
campaigns, and provide free medicines.
