Syria: field camp donated by Italy up and working in Jordan

The field hospital donated by Italy to Jordan to come to the aid of Syrian refugees is now fully functional. Assembly of the facility at Zaatari was completed on Saturday September 1st, thanks to the intervention of Minister Terzi and his Jordanian counterpart Judeh, along with the constant pressure of the Italian Embassy in Amman.

Arriving in Zaatari for the third consecutive day on Sunday 2 September, head of the Embassy’s Italian Cooperation emergency programmes Amjad Yaaqba was able to report that the hospital was fully functional and had admitted its first 62 patients. Head of the Royal Medical Service Major General Ziadat thanked Italy for this humanitarian contribution and ensured the maximum collaboration of the Royal Medical Service on the facility’s smooth operation, also expressing his regret for the delays in the transfer of the facility from Mafraq to the Zaatari camp. At the same time General Ziadat urged the continued support of the Italian government in confronting the humanitarian crisis under way, recalling the dire financial circumstances into which the country had been plunged.

Ambassador Francesco Fransoni will make a visit to the hospital on Tuesday 4 September to personally ascertain that the Italian hospital is in full operational mode.
