The mobile clinic of the Emirates Red Crescent Authority in Hadhramaut Governorate continued to provide its treatment services to the people of the region, as part of the humanitarian efforts launched by the United Arab Emirates in Yemen to alleviate the suffering of the population and provide primary health care to various villages and remote areas of the governorate.
During the month of July, 543 people benefited from the “clinic” in a number of directorates of the Hadhramaut governorate in different age groups, including children, women, men and the elderly, including 146 cases in the Rakhmit area, one of the villages of Al- Raydah and Qusa’ir districts and 72 cases in Al-Maimlah area Al-Dis Al-Sharqiya district, 201 cases in Al-Barh area of Al-Shahr district and 124 cases in Al-Hila area, one of the villages of Brom Mayfa district.
The mobile medical clinic includes a general practitioner, a gynecologist and obstetrician, three nurses, a pharmacist and a laboratory assistant, in addition to health supplies, medical consultations and free medicine.
Dr. Wajdi Al-Akbari, the supervisor of the medical team, said that the clinic offers many free health services and has succeeded in saving the lives of many patients living in the remote areas suffering from a variety of disease conditions.
Al-Akbari explained that what distinguishes this clinic is its ability to reach remote locations, pointing out that most people living in different governorates and villages are unable to reach hospitals in their districts, which are far from each other and they do not have transport or money to travel, which makes the mobile clinic a solution for the population of the area, where they get free services and medicine for children, pregnant and lactating women and the elderly.
It is noteworthy that 15,784 patients have benefited from the services of the clinics since the launch of this health project “Mobile Medical Clinic” in Hadramout Governorate.
