  • The initiative is aimed at finding solutions for serious or difficult cases like cardiac disease or malignant tumors, and find a way it can be treated inside Yemen: KSRelief official

RIYADH- A medical team from the Kingdom supervised by a committee from the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief) has conducted a detailed survey in Marib to explore options for medical treatments inside Yemen.

Speaking to Arab News on Thursday after his return from Marib, Dr. Abdullah Al-Wadai, deputy director for medical and environmental assistance at KSRelief, who headed the committee said: “We were in Marib on Tuesday and Wednesday, it was a study tour about the situation there and how to implement the initiative of King Salman for establishing specialized medical centers for critical cases and diseases facing the Yemeni people.”

“The initiative is aimed at finding solutions for serious or difficult cases like cardiac disease or malignant tumors, and find a way it can be treated inside Yemen,” Al-Wadai said.

He said that the team is working in coordination with the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Finance and the medical services department of the Ministry of Defense.

The committee, formed of KSRelief and representatives from the finance and health ministries along with the medical services of the Armed Forces in Yemen, met to carry out the plan for treatment inside Yemen as well as for patients going abroad for treatment.

“To execute the plan, we have suggested to start with a cardiac center in Marib,” Al-Wadai told Arab News.

In May this year, Al-Wadai headed a medical team from KSRelief and inspected a prosthetic limbs center in Marib, which has been funded by the organization for the second consecutive year.

The aim was to view the progress of work, implement the specifications of the contract with the partner organization tasked with the operation and ensure that services are provided.

The center fitted 305 prosthetic limbs last year for those affected by the mines planted by Houthi militias.

  • KSRelief has donated US$400,000 in hospital operations

DHAKA: On Sunday morning, Hajjera Khatun, 34, a Rohingya refugee of Leda Camp, Cox’s Bazar, visited the Malaysian Field Hospital (MFH) to see her four-year-old son Mohammad Nejad, who cannot walk because of his leg, which has been crippled since birth.
“I have visited this hospital several times before. Probably my son requires surgery and the doctors prescribed some medicine today with the suggestion to bring the child again after one month,” Khatun told Arab News.
For many of the Rohingyas in the Cox’s Bazar area, this hospital is one of the few last resorts for receiving quality treatment in the Rohingya camp areas.
Since December 2017, the MFH has treated more than 25,000 patients from the Rohingya and Bangladesh community, including 768 surgeries.
The 55-bed field hospital was set up by the Malaysian government in response to the Rohingya humanitarian crisis with the support of King Salman Humanitarian aid and relief center (KSRelief) and the UAE.
KSRelief donated a large amount of medical aid equipment to the MFH last Friday to facilitate medical support to Rohingya refugees in the relief camps of Cox’s Bazar.
Dr. Sulieman Ahmed Al-Shurei of KSRelief and Hussein Al-Anzi, director of the office of the Ambassador of Saudi Arabia handed over the equipment to the MFH director, Dr. Mohd Arshil bin Moideen.
“We have received 18 high-value batches of medical equipment from KSRelief, which will help a lot in our treatment and diagnosis process. So far KSRelief has donated around $400,000 in our hospital operations,” Moideen told Arab News.
This level 3 tertiary field hospital provides all sorts of medical care, such as two operating theaters, ICU, wards, dental services, emergency department, labor room, pediatric unit, orthopedic unit, internal medicine unit, Obgyn unit, preventive medicine unit and a logistic unit, Moideen said.
