Saudi medical team visits orphanage in Beirut

Members of the medical team of the Saudi field hospital in Beirut visited one of the city’s orphanages to provide medical care for the children there. The hospital staff has made similar visits to treat people who could not travel to the hospital for treatment.

The hospital was set up July 31 to provide much-needed medical assistance to those suffering as a result of the Israeli strikes on Lebanon. The fully-equipped facility is able to conduct both minor and major operations, and includes laboratories as well as ambulances. The hospital, which is supervised by the Saudi Red Crescent Society, will remain in Lebanon as long as it is needed.

Also today, Saudi aid arrived at the Saudi Red Crescent Society’s aid distribution center in the southern Lebanese city of Tyre.
