Volunteer Doctors Cyprus depart for Beirut

A three-member team of Volunteer Doctors Cyprus departed on Sunday for Beirut to assist in providing healthcare to the injured following the blast in the port last Tuesday.

The team comprises paediatric surgeon Dr Eleni Theocharous and wound nurses Anna Farmaka and Nicoletta Makri.

Dr Theocharous said that they have already contacted a local hospital and will most probably provide assistance there but the team will also be placed elsewhere depending on the needs assessed by the Lebanese health ministry.

She added that they do not know how many days they will stay in Beirut and this will depend on the needs and how urgent they are.

Theocharous said that they will also meet with the Cyprus Embassy, the Hellenic Orthodox, Maronite and Armenian communities.

She added that they convey the message that Cyprus supports the Lebanese people and they are by their side.
