And because of its good results, the hospital has put it within its priorities and has given it all the human resources of doctors and nurses, as well as medicines and medical treatments, because most of the areas its teams visit, are suffering from a lack of medical and therapeutic services.

The medical services were provided free of charge, including eye examination and diagnosis, as well as examining the children and providing them with free treatment, in addition to the examination of internal diseases and providing the treatment appropriate to each case.
