H. Sabbagh – SANA – A plane arrived at Damascus International Airport carrying medical and relief aid from the Russian people to the Syrian people.
Member of Russia’s Imperial Orthodox Palestinian Society and co-president of the Russian Society for Supporting the Syrian People, Oleg Fomin, said the aid includes advanced medical equipment such as breathing systems, sphygmomanometers, electrocardiography equipment, OR beds, incubators, wheelchairs and assorted supplies.
In a statement following the meeting between him and the delegation accompanying the plane and Social Affairs Minister Kinda al-Shammat, Fomin said that this shipment of aid, like the ones before it, was organized by the Imperial Orthodox Palestinian Society and the Russian Society for Supporting the Syrian People and provided by the Russian people, both as individuals and as societies.
He affirmed that there will be other similar shipments, including one to help students at the beginning of the upcoming school year.
In turn, al-Shammat voiced the appreciation and thanks of the Syrian government and her ministry over the Russian people’s efforts and positions, particularly in terms of relief and humanitarian work, particularly the efforts of the Imperial Orthodox Palestinian Society.
She said that this shipment needs urgent medical needs, and that it will be distributed via partners in relief work and the Higher Committee for Relief.
