KUWAIT CITY, Feb 28: Kuwait’s voluntary team “Shefaa” on Wednesday concluded a four-day voluntary mission to Jordan where it offered medical treatment to hundreds of Syrian refugees in the Kingdom. This 15th trip undertaken by the team coincided with Kuwait’s National Days and witnessed a “new humanitarian achievement,” namely offering treatment to 910 Syrians in the Kingdom, among them many children, women and old people, member of the team Dr Bashar Al-Hashash told KUNA.
The trip covered the camps of Al- Zaatari and Al-Azraq close to the Syrian borders as well as other areas randomly occupied by the Syrian refugees, Al-Hashash added.
