(MENAFN - Qatar News Agency) Heads of the Qatar Red Crescent, Sheikh Thani Bin Abdullah Foundation for Humanitarian Services (RAF), the Organization of Islamic Call, and Qatar Charity will lead a delegation visiting Jordan from 21st to 24th of March. During the visit, the delegation will officially announce the extension of the Fund for the Treatment of Wounded Syrians in Jordanian Hospitals. The representatives of the four Qatari societies will discuss ways of strengthening coordination among parties to the Fund and following up the implementation of the project. They have also a scheduled visit on their agenda to check on the wounded at the Jordanian hospitals. The 4 day program begins with a tour at Zaatari refugee camp to inspect the conditions of its residents. The delegation will also pay a visit to the medical service contractors - Jordanian hospitals that provides surgical operations covered by the Fund for the Treatment of Wounded Syrians. Following the tour, the delegation will visit the office of QRC Mission in Jordan for a briefing on psychological support program designed for refugees. The visiting delegation is planning to hold a press conference during which more details on extending the timeframe of the Fund and its total budget will be revealed. The objectives of such step are to bolster efforts, mobilize support, and provide necessary health care to confront the increasing numbers of the wounded refugees fleeing Syria due to the escalating violence. The first phase of the fund began its services in November 1st, 2013, at a cost of QAR 4 mln treating 273 wounded Syrians up to date, 29% were in critical condition, 45% suffered mild cases, and 26% sustained eye injuries. The four charitable societies had delegated the responsibility of implementation to the Qatar Red Crescent based on its expertise in the provision of medical services that conform to the highest of international standards. QRC has entered into bilateral agreements with a number of hospitals and specialized medical centers in Jordan in order to treat the wounded Syrians, including the Islamic Hospital, Dar Al-Salaam Hospital, Shami Center for Eye Treatment and the Dhaleel Hospital for the treatment of kidney patients. It also signed a MoU with the UNHCR to provide medical treatment for Syrian refugees at Zaatari camp suffering from renal failure. The Fund was created in a bid to strengthen efforts in the medical field in light of the growing numbers of wounded Syrians and the insufficiency of the existing services which led to the death of large numbers of people. The poor medical services have had a major impact on the Syrian people, forcing many of the wounded to flee Syria in difficult, lengthy and dangerous ways, amid reports on the rise of refugee numbers escaping to Jordan due to the violence that has erupted nearly 2.5 years ago. A similar QRC project to treat the wounded began in Jordan in 2012 at a cost of 500,000 followed by a later collaboration with Qatar Charity with a budget of 1,700,000. This program had a significant impact on medical treatment and alleviating the suffering of the wounded Syrians who sustained life-threatening injuries in the spine, head and blood vessel
