The project’s medical director said the mobile clinics also offer free medicines to patients, especially those suffering from common diseases such as acute watery diarrhea, skin diseases and malnutrition. He added that there was a lack of basic health services in remote areas, so the project was launched to relieve the burden on the inhabitants of these areas, and noted that they would continue their field visits in various regions where hospitals and medical staff are lacking. Residents thanked the UAE and praised the EFFORTS of the ERC, especially for launching the project.
