UAE field hospital healing earthquake victims’ wounds in Türkiye

A field hospital set up by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for earthquake victims is healing wounds in the Gaziantep province in Türkiye.

The hospital, which began operating four days after twin earthquakes hit southern Türkiye on Feb. 6, employs 50 personnel with 15 doctors.

It has a 50-bed capacity with an operating room, emergency, intensive care, psychology, and family doctor sections.

Director Brig. Gen. Sarhan Al Neyadi told Anadolu that his team came to the region on orders from UAE President Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan after the quakes.

"We are here to help our brothers and sisters who were affected by the devastating effect in the earthquake region. I offer my condolences to the families of the lost. We came here with a very large-capacity hospital that can help the earthquake victims medically. And we're going to help people," said Neyadi. “Doctors from Turkish hospitals also came here, we are working as a team in coordination with them. We continue to work as a single body. Our emergency also provides 24/7 service.”

He said he visited the crisis management desk and saw how professional the crisis managers at the center are and how well they do their jobs.
