In a significant humanitarian effort, Abu Dhabi hosted a preparatory workshop for the first batch of medical volunteers heading to the embattled Gaza Strip. As part of the 'Resolute Knight 3' operation, these volunteers will serve in the Emirati field hospital, a beacon of hope amidst the turmoil.
Preparing for a Critical Mission
The workshop welcomed 30 female volunteers, equipping them with crucial information about the current situation in Gaza, and the Emirati field hospital's operations. The hospital, which has already started treating patients, stands as a lifeline in the conflict-ridden region, offering medical services to those affected by the ongoing strife.
During the workshop, volunteers were briefed on their mission and the stages of task implementation. They were also given an overview of medical instructions and safety procedures pertinent to the prevailing circumstances. Volunteers were advised to travel light, limit their consumption of water and food, and prepare for long working hours.
Collaborative Effort to Aid the Afflicted
The volunteer group comprises professionals from various healthcare specialties, ready to provide direct assistance to patients in Gaza. Several volunteers have already departed from the UAE in recent weeks to join the fully-equipped field hospital, a testament to the UAE's commitment to aiding the Palestinian people.
The UAE, through the Emirates Red Crescent, dispatched additional relief aid comprising shelter materials and basic food items on Sunday. This aid was distributed to the most affected areas in Gaza, bolstering the UAE's continued support since the outbreak of the conflict.
Extending Help Beyond Borders
In an unprecedented move, the UAE is arranging for 2,000 Palestinians, including those wounded in the conflict, cancer patients, and children, to be flown to the Emirates for medical care. This humanitarian gesture follows the UAE's opening of the summit with a pledge of 100 million to a new fund to assist developing nations impacted by climate change.
The Emirati field hospital, the medical volunteers, and the UAE's extensive relief efforts paint a picture of a nation committed to extending its hand to those in need, regardless of borders and conflicts. Amid the chaos and despair, the UAE stands firm, offering a glimmer of hope to the war-torn Gaza Strip.
