Qatar Charity provides medicine for kidney patients in northern Syria
With funding from Qatar Fund for Development, Qatar Charity has secured quantities of necessary medicines and medical requirements for kidney patients in the cities and countryside of northern Syria through its strategic medical warehouses.More than 700 people with kidney failure benefit from these medicines. Qatar Charity has secured their needs for necessary medicines every three months for a year.The "strategic medical warehouses in northern Syria" project, launched by Qatar Charity this year with funding from Qatar Fund for Development, is a vital project, as tens of thousands suffer from chronic diseases throughout the region and its health centers are devoid of basic medical supplies.The project has provided two strategic warehouses for storing and preserving medicines and medical supplies for patients with renal failure, whose services cover (30) health facilities with a monthly supply of medical services, in addition to (47) hospitals that are provided with the necessary medical analgesics, in addition to providing (11) hospitals with dialysis medicines in the north Syrian. The project focuses its efforts on the displaced, especially women, children.Officials from health centers in northern Syria confirm that the health needs of the displaced are great and need concerted efforts to provide the necessary medicines, especially for patients undergoing dialysis, and that the health centers in the region lack the most basic elements of health care and need medicines and medical requirements.The officials appreciated the support provided by Qatar Fund for Development and Qatar Charity for their efforts to provide these quality medicines to kidney patients and secure them for their needs of medicines.They pointed out that this vital project contributes to saving hundreds of chronically ill patients. The medical materials donated to Al-Hedaya Dialysis Center and other primary health centers will significantly affect the strengthening and continuity of medical services for displaced patients in the region.
