AMMAN — The UAE mobile field hospital arrived in Jordan on Sunday night to provide health and humanitarian services to Syrian refugees in the Kingdom.
The hospital will start receiving patients during the coming few days, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.
UAE Ambassador to Jordan Abdullah Al Amri said the step came to meet the healthcare needs of the growing number of Syrian refugees coming to Jordan.
Meanwhile, the UN Population Fund (UNFPA) in Jordan has set up several clinics for women at the Zaatari refugee camp and the King Abdullah Park and Cyber City facilities to assist Syrian refugees, especially those who are pregnant, a UNFPA statement said.
The UNFPA said the clinics had been set up to meet the large increase in the number of Syrians coming to Jordan and the growing demand for health services, especially maternity services.
The clinics have been set up in cooperation with the Jordan Health Aid Society and include female gynaecologists and midwives, the statement said.
