AMMAN — The Saudi Arabia for Syrian Refugees campaign on Saturday sent 1.5 million Saudi riyals (JD283,504) in aid to the Saudi clinics in the Zaatari Refugee Camp.
The general manager at the clinics, Ahmad Hiari, said the aid would be used to buy medicine for the Syrian refugees in the camp.
He said the Saudi clinics currently included 12 different units, in addition to a pharmacy and a medical laboratory, and that additional, specialised clinics would be opened there in the future.
Saudi Ambassador to Jordan Sami Al Saleh on Saturday checked on the medical test laboratory in the Zaatari camp for Syrian refugees.
The Saudi national campaign for aiding Syrian refugees in Jordan dispatched 88 truck laden with food, winter clothes, blankets, tents and fire extinguishers to Jordan earlier this week.
A total of 42 trucks laden with Saudi aid to the Zaatari Refugee Camp arrived at the Jordanian Hashemite Charity Organisation’s warehouses on Wednesday.
