Dr. Mohammed Zoubi, director of the clinic, said that the clinics offered medical services to nearly 1,579 refugees residing in the Za’atari refugee camp, while 907 prescriptions were made up to refugees for curable and chronic diseases such as hypertension, diabetes and heart diseases. Moreover, 185 packs of infant formula were provided to babies in the refugee camp, while 101 medical examinations and laboratory tests were conducted in the clinics.
Dr. Badr bin Abdul Rahman Al Samhan, regional director of “The Saudi National Campaign to support our Brothers in Syria”, said that “the campaign gives special focus to the medical side because of its impact on all aspects of life for our Syrian brothers, especially in light of the lack of funding for medical services.
