The Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) has deployed a multi-specialty medical convoy to Nyala, South Darfur State, Sudan.

At a total cost of $80,102 (around QR292,372), the medical delegation comprises consultants in different specialisations from Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC), to be assisted by the local medical staff of The Nyala Specialist Hospital.

In a statement, Dr Abdullah Rashid al-Nuaimi, senior urologist at HMC, board member of QRCS, and head of delegation, said they targeted 100 operations in general surgery, urology, vascular surgery, orthopaedics, and paediatric surgery.

"Medical examinations and medications will also be provided free of charge for our brothers and sisters in Sudan," he added.

As shown by the action plan, the overall objective is to make medical assistance available to the suffering patients and injuries in Darfur region. To that end, the health conditions of poor local communities are surveyed, data is collected to specify the required help, and surgeries are performed to address the health issues of the patients, while preserving their dignity and protection.

In addition to 100 patients to be operated on, there will be 500 indirect beneficiaries from the families of the patients, as well as the whole population of Nyala, who would benefit later on from the provided surgical equipment.

At the developmental level, the project supports the Nyala Specialist Hospital with the medical equipment and aids needed to work effectively and upgrade their surgical services. Also, the local medical staff is updated with the latest surgical techniques.

A preliminary survey was conducted to select the beneficiaries, which were double-checked by a doctor from Doha.

Agreements were signed by QRCS's representation office in Sudan with the Sudanese Red Crescent Society (SRCS), the State Directorate of Health, and other local partners to prepare for the project, secure the official permissions, and make the necessary procurements.
