The representation office of Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) in Jordan has deployed a series of mobile medical clinics to several governorates, in cooperation with Jordan National Red Crescent Society (JNRCS) and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC).

Over two days, the medical personnel visited Dair Alla District (Balqa Governorate) to provide medical consultations and medications in the specialties of GP and obstetrics and gynecology, for the benefit of 230 older persons, women, and children. JNRCS volunteers held public sessions to raise awareness about the Coronavirus and effective protections to prevent it.

Another couple of mobile medical clinic were deployed to Al-Mudawwara (Ma'an Governorate) and Saidia (Mafraq Governorate), where medical services were given to 100 and 130 beneficiaries, respectively.

The purpose of these mobile medical clinics is to reach out to as many patients as possible in their own neighborhoods.

A joint team of QRCS and JNRCS visited the patients with kidney failure receiving treatment under a dialysis project that currently serves 75 Syrian refugees, with funding from the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).

Focusing on the Syrian refugees with kidney failure out of camps, the project provides life-saving and free-of-charge medical services for the beneficiaries, by covering the costs of securing dialysis consumables and medications.
