KUWAIT: The Surgery Department at Jaber Hospital organized the first Kuwait conference on ‘charity action’ in the medical field under the patronage of Health Ministry and in cooperation with Association of Doctors, Kuwait Association of Surgeons and Kuwait Medical Association. Head of Surgery Department at Jaber Hospital Dr Suleiman Al-Mazidi said, the conference which was attended by a large number of doctors and representatives from Health Ministry and NGOs including the Red Crescent, was to recognize the humanitarian work Kuwait doctors are doing.

The conference reviewed the charity achievements in the medical field by Kuwaiti doctors around the world. “There are many medical charity organizations that visited more than 30 countries to treat hundreds of patients every year,” Dr Al-Mazidi said, adding that Kuwait Association of surgeons will support the voluntary medical campaigns to promote Kuwait government’s reputation in support of humanitarian projects. Meanwhile Urologist Faisal Al-Hajiri said the conference was at the initiative of Jaber Hospital and Kuwait Medical Association.
