QRCS provides medical aid for 27,000 displaced Syrians
January 22 2020 12:29 AM

Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) is going on with its emergency response to the recent mass displacement in southern Idlib countryside.
QRCS medical professionals have helped over 1,200 internally displaced persons (IDPs), including 761 children and 462 pregnant and breastfeeding women. In addition, 157 families (785 persons) received hygiene kits.
At the same time, QRCS supported the major hospitals in northern Syria to be able to serve the injured victims of the recent escalation across southern Idlib.
In co-ordination with the Idlib Health Directorate, a total of 27 surgical kits were delivered to nine hospitals that serve a 25,000 population. 
Executive Director of Relief and International Development Division at QRCS Dr Mohamed Salah Ibrahim said, “Sadly, things are going even worse across Idlib. The calamity is by far larger than the available resources. The community and IDPs lack the very basics of life, such as food, treatment, heating, and 
hygiene.” (QNA)
