Homs - SMART

On Tuesday, Syrian Red Crescent teams and other organizations promised medical teams in the Rukban camp near the Syrian-Jordanian border (240 kilometers southeast of Homs) that they will try to get critical patients out of the camp and bring them to Damascus for treatment.

A doctor at the Sham clinic in the camp, known as Dr Osama, reported that they met with representatives of the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), the World Health Organization (WHO), the World Food Program (WFP), and the Red Crescent.

Dr. Osama said that during the meetings, the organizations promised that they will try to get critical patients and those suffering from chronic diseases out of the camp. Dr. Osama added that the organizations asked for a list of the patients, and that they will inform them of the result after the relief teams return to Damascus.

Dr. Osama said that they received medicine, including antibiotics and vitamins for pregnant women and children. Dr. Osama also stated that most of the photos published are packages containing salts, skin creams and diapers.

Earlier, an international delegation accompanied by Red Crescent teams entered the camp with a humanitarian aid convoy, more than a month after the Syrian government forces besieged the camp, preventing the entry of food and medical supplies.

Last month, about 175 children were malnourished in the camp, and many died as a result of lack of medicine and medical care. A sandstorm also caused difficulty breathing for dozens of people.

The Rukban camp is home to about 50,000 people, suffering in poor health, education and general living conditions, amid protests against the failure of humanitarian organizations support them.
