Czech doctors to care for Syrian refugees in Jordan

The Czech government on Wednesday approved a plan to send a team of doctors to Jordan to provide health care to refugees from Syria, as part of the government’s Medevac programme. Some Syrian patients will also receive treatment in the Czech Republic. Details of the mission are to be finalized during the Czech foreign minister’s visit to Jordan next week. Czech doctors might arrive to Jordan by the end of the month, and work in a hospital in the capital Amman. Since the start of the civil war in Syria, the Czech Republic has provided over 43 million crowns in aid while 12 Syrian patients have received treatment in Czech hospitals.
